Borrow Resources Beyond Oxy

When searching for a resource, you can use OneSearch to see if it is available here at Oxy. If we don't have it, you can place a request through our resource sharing service Rapido. There is no need to create a new account to use Rapido. If you are unsure of the status of your request, contact Resource Sharing at or x2814.

Tech Lending Program

The library’s Tech Lending program offers a collection of technological devices and audio/visual equipment for checkout as well as a reservable audio booth to all current Oxy students, faculty, and staff. All available items are conveniently listed by category on the Tech Lending Collection site and can be picked up at the front desk of the Academic Commons.

Learn more about Tech Lending, including how to request items.

Suggest a Library Purchase

If you are a student or faculty member and need something for your research, teaching, or study that the Library does not own or subscribe to, let us know. We may help you get it from one of our many borrowing partners, or we may buy it for our collection. To suggest the purchase of a book, ebook, journal, audio/video recording, etc., send us an email including as much information as you can about the resource (title, author, publisher, date, and if possible, link to the item).
