Basin High School Students:
The Library contains approximately 140,000 books and bound periodicals, and subscribes to over 1,200 periodicals. We have over 70 online databases as well as Federal and Oregon State documents. Please feel free to make full use of these resources while visiting our library.
Printing and Copying
Printing from our computers is available for 10 cents a page or you may elect to bring a USB drive (thumb drive) and download your information onto it. In addition, many of our databases allow you to email information to yourself.
We also have self-service photocopiers at 10 cents a copy cash.
Occasionally, you will find that we do not own the book or magazine that you need. When this occurs, write down the full bibliographic citation (author, title, date of publication, journal issue number, and pagination) and request this material through your high school or your local public library.
Borrower's Card Application
In order to check out Oregon Tech Library materials, you will need to apply for a Courtesy Borrower's Card. For this application, you need to bring in your high school identification card. You will also need to know your Social Security number, which serves as your Oregon Tech identification number. Your borrowing account at Oregon Tech will expire at the end of June.
Oregon Tech offers many different databases through the Library computers. These databases can only be accessed at the Library unless you are a registered Oregon Tech student or employee. Because of the variety of databases, ask at the Help Desk if you need help locating material.
Library Services available to Dual Credit and HST Program Students
In addition to the services available to all area high school students, those students who are taking classes through Oregon Tech are offered some additional services. Students who are in the Dual Credit or the High School Transition Program are eligible to apply for off-campus access to library databases and can request Interlibrary Loan services from the Oregon Tech library.
