The Library is working with the Campus Store to offer pickups of books and other circulating materials at the Campus Store's loading dock on the Albany Campus.
Place a hold on the resource from your library account, and you will receive an email with further instructions about the pickup times and location. If you would like assistance with this process, please contact the Reference Desk at (541) 917-4645 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have class assignments, papers or things you need to have printed, you can send an email to email@example.com with your document as an attachment and the LBCC print shop will print it for you, and notify you when it is available for pickup at the LBCC Campus Store's curbside location.
The Library is able to support you with both access and copyright information for streaming media.
Students who have time between on campus classes can go to the following areas to study:
All of our articles, ebooks, streaming videos, and other databases are available on and off campus. If you are on campus, you will need to log in using your LBCC ID and your year of birth.
Whether you are researching on or off campus, be sure to start your search from links on the Library's Web site to avoid paywalls.
Most items are due on the last day of finals. Items from other libraries and renewed items may have a different due date. Check on My Library Account to see due dates and other account details.
Please return books, hot spots, and DVDs to the book drop outside the Albany Campus Library or a partner library in the Linn Libraries Consortium. Options to return Laptops are outlined below. Please return all accessories (bag, cord, mouse) that were checked out with the laptop. We recommend that you get a note from the staff verifying the date, your name, and the library barcode (starts with 3881300..).
Textbooks currently check out for the whole term. This means fewer people will have access to them.
There are several ways to find and access a peer-reviewed journal article. One of the easiest ways is to search the Library's Academic Search Premier database. On the results list for your search, look for the Academic Journal icon. Most articles (reviews and letters to the editor are the exceptions) in Academic Journals have to be reviewed by the author/s' peers in the discipline before they are published.
You can make an appointment with a librarian by calling (541) 917-4645 or emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
However, the easiest way to meet with a librarian is to visit us during drop-in hours! Librarians staff the Reference/Information deskon the Albany campus (that's the desk furthest away from the front door) Monday--Friday 9 am to 5 pm, and Saturday/Sunday 11 am to 4 pm. You will meet a libriarian and get the same service as you would in an appointment. If visiting during the summer or between terms, check our website for hours.
If closer to Lebanon, you can visit our library branch that is located in the Healthcare Occupations Center building (next door to the medical school) Monday--Friday, 7:30 am to 4:30 pm, with appointments unavailable between 12 pm and 1 pm.
We look forward to working with you!

Research appointments are a great way to get one-on-one help from a librarian.
To make a research appointment with a librarian, visit https://appointments.lbcc.linnlibraries.org/.
You'll be asked to choose a librarian to meet with. We are all generalists and cross trained to help students in every subject area, but if you want to see if there is someone who focuses on your subject area, visit "Meet our librarians."
Thirty minute research appointments are available once a day by phone or Zoom, Monday through Friday between 8:00 am and 5:00 pm. They must be scheduled at least 24 hours in advance. When scheduling an appointment, use the "Notes" field to let us know if you will need accomodations, or anything else you would like us to know about your assignment. Please bring your assignment with you to the appointment, along with any other documents you think will be helpful, like your instructor's syllabus and grading criteria.
Need help sooner or have a quick question? Contact us via chat, email, or phone.
We value your privacy and safety, so when you enter the Library Zoom Room you will be placed in a waiting room. A reference librarian will admit you for an individual session, and only you and the librarian will be able to access the video, audio, and chat.
Grant applications will be evaluated by a sub-group of the Textbook Affordability Steering Committee using the following criteria:
