The Southwestern Oregon Community College (SWOCC) Library provides resources to students, faculty, staff, and community members. We belong to the COASTLINE library system to access books, movies, periodicals, and databases from across Coos and Curry Counties.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Is the library open?

Library staff will be here to serve you Monday - Friday 10 AM - 6 PM via email, phone, Zoom, and curbside pickup.  Face-to-face services are suspended March 29th to April 9th while Coos County is in the extreme COVID risk status.  Please see our website for updates.

Can I print documents?

You can attach your documents to an email and send them to [email protected].  Please include when you would like to pick them up via our curbside cart.  We will not charge students for printing at this time. 

How do I check out books and movies?

You need a Coastline Library card to check out materials, and you can fill out an online application here.  Place orders online with your Coastline account or by contacting us.  This video will help you get started.  Students and staff can pick up library materials by appointment at our contactless curbside cart.  The cart is located underneath our 24-hour Book Return slot to the right of our main doors Tioga 2.  We receive Coastline deliveries Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.  Library items are quarantined for at least 24 hours before reuse.

Yes, you will be asked to enter your 7-digit SWOCC ID number for access. Does your ID have 6 or fewer digits? Add zeros to the front until it is 7-digits (123456 becomes 0123456). These videos will help you get started using our online resources.
