How can I borrow library books / DVDs / CDs?

Douglas Co.Online, but live in Douglas County?

You can use your Douglas County Library System card to request items from the UCC Library be sent to your closest branch library using the Place a Hold feature in the Douglas County Libraries Catalog.

Items from UCC will be sent to the requested branch library on the next business day after your hold is entered, if the item is available. Assuming the requested item is on the shelf, you can expect the item to arrive within 3-5 business days.

In order to have items sent to your public library branch, make sure to log-in with your DCLS card number (not the UCC student ID).

Not sure where your closest branch library is? Check out all of the DCLS branches on a map.

Live in Oregon?

Oregon State University and University of Oregon offer free borrowing privileges to Oregon residents 16 years and older through their Oregon Card programs.

Portland State University offers non-enrolled students the opportunity to borrow from their collection for an annual fee.

Many libraries offer "Oregon Library Passport" accounts-- showing a card from another Oregon library (public or academic) will grant you limited borrowing privileges at other Oregon libraries. The terms vary with each library, so check the Oregon Library Passport Program page to see if libraries near you participate.

Interlibrary loan (ILL) is an option for you! If you are affiliated with another college or university, check with your college/university's library to see what local ILL services they offer. 

UCC Library offers Interlibrary Loan services for current students taking credit classes, but the items will need to be picked up at the Main Campus at the library's circulation desk.

Many public libraries will also offer ILL services to patrons, although you may need to pay additional processing fees.
