OC Library Catalogue Search



Books & Media Icon


The Okanagan College Library Catalogue lists books, ebooks, DVDs, streaming videos, and CDs that are in the Library collection. You can also search to see if the Library subscribes to a specific print or electronic journal by entering the title of the journal. However, you cannot use the catalogue to search for articles within the journals.
