About the Library: Services

This guide includes information on services and policies at the OCCC Library.

Laptops, Hotspots and Webcams

The library offers 100 Dell Laptop Computers and 25 Mobile Hotspots for students to checkout.  Laptops/hotspots checkout for the duration of the 8 week term.  Students in 16 week courses will be given the option to renew their laptop or hotspot checkout by submitting a schedule at the end of the first 8 weeks that shows they are still enrolled in the 16 week term.

The library also has 10 webcams available for student use.  Students needing to record themselves for class projects but do not have a webcam at home may check one out for up to 7 days at a time.

Course Reserves

Want to save money on textbooks, waiting for your financial aid to arrive, or maybe the bookstore sold out of a textbook you were looking for? We may have the books you need on Course Reserves. The Library puts many general education titles and faculty requests on Course Reserves for current OCCC students. Graphing calculators are also available. Course Reserves may be checked out for 2 hours at a time, for in-library use only. Stop by the Circulation Desk to check out a Course Reserve. Please have your textbook information and your student ID ready.

OK-Share - Using Other College Libraries in Oklahoma

OCCC students, faculty, & staff may use the libraries of many other higher education institutions in Oklahoma to check out books using an OK-Share Card, which can be requested in person at the Library Circulation Desk. Once an OK-Share card is received, you may go to any OK-Share participating institution to utilize their facilities and borrow materials from their library. OK-Share cards are only valid for the current semester and must be renewed each semester. Library staff reserve the right to refuse an OK-Share library card to anyone who has overdue books and/or a history of not returning books on time. Students from other institutions may also request an OK-Share card from their institution library and then present the card at the OCCC Library to check out items from the collection. A valid student ID as well as an OK-Share card issued by their institution is required. For more information, please visit the Circulation Desk or call (405) 682-7564

Chargers and Headphones

Chargers and headphones are available for check out. The chargers are for small devices such as cell phones and tablets. These can be borrowed at the Circulation Desk. Please provide a photo ID.

The OCCC Library provides seven group study rooms accommodating 2 to 6 people. The study rooms are located throughout the Library's 2nd floor. You must have at least two people to occupy a study room. All seven study rooms may be reserved. All study rooms have white boards available and several include Huddle Stations. Dry erase markers and an eraser will be checked out to each group. 

All study rooms must be checked out at the Circulation Desk, and at least 2 members of the group must be present for the room to be checked out and unlocked.

Study Cubbys

The library offers 8 individual study cubicles called Study Cubbys located on the 2nd floor.  Study Cubbys can be reserved for individual study.  Students may reserve Study Cubbys online before coming to the library, in person at the Circulation desk, at the reservation kiosk located beside each Study Cubby, or by calling the Library at 405-682-7564.  

Zoom Room

The Zoom Room is located on the 2nd floor of the library in room 208.

The Zoom Room can be used for a variety of technology needs:

  1. Interactive and collaborative learning by groups of 2 or more OCCC students, staff, and faculty.
  2. Individuals attending Zoom meetings by OCCC affiliated and community patrons when other private space is unavailable.
  3. Individuals attending Skype meetings/interviews by OCCC affiliated and community patrons when other private space is unavailable.
  4. Individuals recording themselves giving a presentation or speech by OCCC affiliated and community patrons.  

NOTE: Individuals using this room alone must be using the room for one of the reasons above or may be asked to leave the room.


The Zoom Room may be used for 2 hours at a time per group/individual. If a group/individual would like to continue using the room and no other reservation has been made or other groups/individuals waiting to use it, they may do so. To use the room, go to the Circulation Desk.  A Zoom Room Kit will be checked out to one person in the group. That person will be responsible for the room and the contents of the kit.

You may make reservations online, by phone, or in person at the Circulation Desk.  Reservations may be made for up to 14 days in advance. If a group/individual is 10 minutes late for their reservation, the reservation will be canceled. If the room is not currently in use and there is no existing reservation, and a group would like to use it, they can do so for up to 2 hours or until the time of a scheduled reservation, whichever comes first. 

The person to whom the room is checked out is responsible for the room, the Zoom Room Kit and all the contents. If that person needs to leave before the group is finished, the kit will need to be returned and then checked out to a new member of the group.

The following are rules posted in the Collaboration Room:

  • This space is intended for use by OCCC affiliated patrons to work collaboratively on OCCC assignments or for individuals (OCCC affiliated and community patrons) to use Zoom, Skype, or to record themselves.
  • This space is near offices and the walls are thin. Please keep conversation and the volume of the television and other devices to a reasonable level.
  • Once finished with the room, please check that all items are in the Zoom Room Kit and return the Kit to the Circulation Desk.
  • If you use the whiteboards, please erase them. 

The room is equipped with a large TV monitor with wireless capabilities. Instructions are provided in the room for how to connect to the TV. You can connect using any type of device that can connect to wireless internet. Anyone connected can then share the image from their device onto the screen. The room also has two whiteboards.  

Meditation Room

A Meditation Room is available on the second floor of the library in room LIB 207.  The purpose of the Meditation Room is for patrons needing a quiet and private place to mediate, contemplate, or pray while on campus.  The room includes low lighting, rugs, and directional signage.  Patrons do not need to ask to use the Meditation Room.  To ensure that you are not disrupted while using the Meditation Room, there is a sign on the door to let others know the room is in use.
