National Library Week is April 7-13, so we’re celebrating OTC’s Libraries for the outstanding resources and support they provide to students. Keep reading to discover some of the fun (and free) library services available to you.
1. College-level research isn’t easy. Fortunately, our librarians can help you find, evaluate and use a wide variety of sources. Make an appointment for a one-on-one research consultation, stop by, or use our chat service to send an instant message to a library staff member.
2. The Hamra Family Library in Springfield has a new Family Study Room. If you need a quiet, distraction-free place to get some homework done while your kiddos stay occupied with toys and books, ask a library staff member to check you in (but please remember, children should not be left unattended).
3. Phone going dead? We hate that. If you’re on the Springfield campus, just pop into the Hamra Library to borrow an iPhone or Android charger.
4. All OTC students get free, unlimited access to the New York Times. All you have to do is register with your OTC email, and then you’ll be able to login on the website or NYT app. Just renew your subscription with your OTC email every six months to keep accessing content.
5. Still hitting the Redbox for entertainment? There’s no need. OTC’s Libraries subscribe to Feature Films for Education, which gives you access to more than 600 current and classic streaming movies.
And don’t forget the best part. All of these resources and services are free for OTC students. Come in and check out the OTC Libraries today!
