MY CLASSES ARE IN MUSKOGEE. DO I HAVE TO DRIVE TO THE WARNER CAMPUS TO USE THE LIBRARY?
Connors has two library locations. The main library is on the Warner Campus but there is a branch library located in ICTC Building E which is directly south of the NAH building at the Port Campus in Muskogee. The same services afforded the Warner Campus students are available to the Port students. Requests for materials that reside at the Warner Campus may take 48-72 hours to fill so you are encouraged to plan ahead.
Also, the Muskogee Public Library (MPL), is located at 801 West Okmulgee Avenue. Muskogee County residents and residents affiliated with communities making up the Eastern Oklahoma District Library System can use and check-out MPL’s resources with an EODLS-issued library card. Students from non-affiliated counties such as communities in Wagoner and Okmulgee counties may use MPL resources in the building but will have to pay an out-of-district annual fee to check out materials.
WHAT IS AVAILABLE IN THE LIBRARY?
Muskogee Three River’s Port Campus: Along with the reference collection, Port Campus Library also holds fiction and non-fiction books, periodicals, videos, reserves, copy machine, computer workstations, and study areas are all together in one area.
Warner Campus: Our main collection is housed in the Warner Campus Library and includes fiction and non-fiction books, reserves, entertainment DVD’s, periodicals and educational videos. We also have a copy machine, computer workstations, and study areas.
HOW LONG MAY I CHECK OUT LIBRARY MATERIALS?
Most books are checked out for 3 weeks and may be renewed if not on hold for someone else. Education videos, DVDs, etc., may be checked out for 1 week. Check-out times are shorter during the summer. Certain specialized items such as reserves and entertainment DVD’s have different loan periods.
HOW MANY BOOKS, VIDEOS OR DVDS MAY I CHECK OUT AT ONE TIME?
There is a 5 title limit per person on most items. Some items have more restrictive limits. See Library
Staff for details.
WHERE ARE THE RESERVE MATERIALS KEPT?
The reserve materials are kept behind the Information Desks at both campus library locations.
HOW MUCH IS THE FINE FOR OVERDUE ITEMS?
The fine rate for books is 10¢ per day; videos and other multi-media materials are
50¢ per day. The fine for entertainment DVD’s is $1 per day.
IS THERE A PLACE FOR OUR GROUP TO STUDY TOGETHER?
A small group study room is available at the Warner Library on a first-come, first-served basis.
WHAT IF THE LIBRARY DOESN’T OWN THE ITEMS I NEED?
We participate in an Inter-library Loan system (ILL), through which items may be borrowed for your use from other
libraries. See Library Staff at either campus library location or fill out the Online Inter-library Loan form here.
CAN I GET TO THE DATABASES FROM MY HOME?
You can access the library’s subscription databases remotely via the library’s web page, C-key credentials are required for database access. If you don’t have C-key access, library staff can help you get access.
WHERE CAN I FIND COMPUTERS FOR WORD PROCESSING, WEBCT, and DATABASES?
The library computers at both campus locations have the software and/or access needed for classes at Connors. This includes the latest edition of MS Office, BlackBoard, Course Compass, nursing application software and other programs.
CAN I CHECK OUT MATERIALS FROM OTHER OKLAHOMA COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES?
Connors participates in the OK-Share program. The OK-Share program allows students, faculty and staff at Oklahoma’s public colleges and universities to borrow materials from other public colleges across the state. To participate in OK-Share you must complete an OK-Share card application at either Connors’ Library location. If approved, you will receive a card entitling you to borrow from any participating library with the proper identification.
