Library Basics

-The library hours are 8:00am - 6:00pm Monday - Thursday, and 8:00am - 1:30pm Friday. We are not open on the weekends. 

-You can contact the library by email (library@octech.edu), phone ((803)-535-1262), chat (on the right side of this page), and in person. We no longer offer Zoom meetings.

-Library databases help you find academic articles.

-You do NOT have to be in the library to use library websites. You may login while off campus and use online library resources.

-You may check out books and films and videos from the library. We also offer articles and databases, eBooks, subject and course guides online.

-All library databases will generate a citation for you. It isn't not recommended that you use the citation that the databases generate. It is best if you use that citation to help gather the necessary information and then create your own citation. If you need help with citations, please contact the library. We're happy to help with APA and MLA!
