OCCC Keith Leftwich Memorial Library: Find Books

OCCC Library Website / Mon-Thurs 7:30am-9pm; Fri 7:30am-5pm; Sat 9am-3pm / Library resources for OCCC students, faculty, and staff. Find books, articles, other resources, ask a librarian, research assistance, and more.

Find Books, eBooks, Online Films, and More

Search Books, eBooks, and More in the OCCC Library Catalog

Use the OCCC Library Catalog to identify OCCC books, eBooks, online films, and more. Here are some tips for searching in the catalog:

  • Keywords: Use keywords, not sentences like you may do in Google (example: wound care NOT how do you treat wounds)
  • Add Keywords: Use multiple keywords. Start with one and add others to narrow your search (example: stroke and rehabilitation)
  • Publication Date: After your initial search, update the publication date to get rid of older titles in your results list.
  • Material Type: If you prefer a specific material format, select from the "Material Type" list under "Limit Search Results" on the left.

Electronic Books

The OCCC Library has access to two different eBook platforms. All eBook titles are included in the Library Catalog search results.

Interlibrary Loan

If the OCCC Library does not have the book or article that you need, you may be able to use Interlibrary Loan (ILL).

What is ILL?

  • ILL is a free service available to OCCC students, faculty, and staff.
  • It allows the OCCC Library to borrow books and articles we do not own from libraries across the U.S. 

ILL links libraries across the nation for sharing resources, based on the principles that no single library can acquire everything and that furthering knowledge is in the public interest.
