At OSU-Cascades, you have access to the personal service of a small college and the resources of a large university.
OSU-Cascades shares the Barber Library with COCC. Features waiting for you at the Barber Library include:
- technology tools – computers, printers, and a fast color scanner on the main floor; you can also check out laptops, tablets, e-readers, and cameras from the Circulation Desk.
- a place to focus – several different study rooms for those times when you need a quiet space to focus on your work; take a look at the beautiful Oregon rooms on the second floor.
- research and reading materials – from the latest scientific articles to e-books to popular fiction; this is also where you’ll find course reserve materials from your instructors.
- personalized assistance – in addition to Sara Thompson, the OSU-Cascades librarian, you can also get help in person from the COCC librarians or chat online with the OSU-Corvallis librarians
With your ONID login, you also have access to an online treasure trove of OSU Libraries resources:
- Library 1Search – search across thousands of books, journals, newspapers, and government resources
- hundreds of e-books – get a head start on that research paper even when the library isn’t open; just search our catalog for e-books and online articles
- partnerships – through Summit partners and InterLibrary Loan you can request books or articles from libraries all over the world; they’ll come directly to you at the Barber Library circulation desk or your email inbox
- databases – research is more than just books and articles; take a look at maps, market reports, and citation connections within our many databases
