Library Services for Faculty

The Library supports all faculty at all COCC campuses - Bend, Redmond, Madras, Prineville and online.

Information Literacy Instruction
Faculty may request in-classroom instruction with a librarian. We will customize instruction based on your assignments and needs. More details and scheduling information.

    Using Library Resources in the Classroom
    We encourage you to use Library resources for your assignments and to support research/information literacy outcomes in your classes. 

    Collection Development
    Request purchase of Library materials (books, DVDs, journals, and online resources) to support your classes, curricula, and programs. 

    Course Reserves
    Put a copy of your textbook or supplemental course materials on reserve for your students. More details.

    Open Educational Resources (OER)
    The Library supports faculty who are using - or plan to use - OER in their classes. See our Library page on OER and contact us for assistance.

    Research Help
    Librarians are available to help you and your students with research questions large and small. No appointment is needed, and help is available in person and by phone, email, and chat. Chat help is available 24/7.

    Borrowing Library Items
    Tens of thousands of Library resources are available online 24/7, from any location where you have an Internet connection. Additionally, you have access to physical collections at COCC and beyond via our Summit and Interlibrary Loan borrowing networks. More details.

      We welcome your questions! You can contact individual staff, or, if you aren't sure whom to contact, start with our Information Desk email or phone number, and we'll make sure your question gets answered.
