Document Duplication Services
A Xerox copier is available in the library media center for student use. Copies are 5 cents per copy.
Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is an agreement among participating libraries to make certain materials, books, dissertations, journal articles, etc., available to member libraries upon request. This agreement for “resource sharing” gives library patrons access to far more materials than any one library could hold. The Ogeechee Technical College Library Media Center searches its own collection first and then searches the Online Computer Library Center (OCLC) database to locate and borrow materials owned by other US, Canadian and European libraries. Students may also search the WorldCat database to locate books, and Gold (Georgia Online Libraries) to locate journal articles. Both databases are available through Galileo (Georgia Library Learning Online). Some material may not be available for request since many loans are based on the lending institution lending policy. As a partner in Lyrasis, we have access to other libraries within the Lyrasis program.
To request materials from Interlibrary Loan, complete the online Interlibrary Loan Request form at the following links: Book Request Form, Article Request Form. Interlibrary loan material will be ordered on a first come first serve basis.
Intercampus borrowing is a service available to all OTC faculty, staff, and students. Patrons from the main campus and other off-site locations may borrow circulating materials from the Main location. Non-circulating materials are journals, videos, CD-ROMs, and Reserve Books may be requested by faculty and staff. Courier service between campuses allows for quick delivery of requested materials. To request a book, students can use our Intercampus Borrowing Request Form.
