SWOCC Library

Hours: M-Th, 10am-6pm

Office: Tioga, 2nd Floor


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?

All in-person services are now available Monday - Thursday 10 AM - 6 PM.  Woohoo!

Do I have to wear a mask?

No, but the college recommends masks and social distancing for individuals who are not fully vaccinated, or who are vaccinated but have weakened immune systems and are at risk for COVID-19.

Can I print documents?

You can print from library computers, or you can attach your documents to an email and send them to [email protected].  You can pick them up at the front desk.  Printing is still free for SWOCC students and staff this summer, but we will resume charging in the fall.

How do I check out books and movies?

Place orders online with your Coastline account or by contacting us.  You need a Coastline Library card to check out materials, and you can fill out an application on our website. We receive Coastline deliveries every morning Monday through Thursday.

How do I receive library help via Zoom?

Send an email to [email protected] and she will schedule an appointment with you!

Can I access library databases from off-campus?

Yes, 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.
