Dean’s Welcome

Dean’s Welcome

As a long-time Portland resident and former PCC student, I am proud to be part of a College and a library that are so important to our community. PCC Library transforms lives by providing welcoming and inclusive environments where anyone can explore, create, and learn.

Even when PCC campuses are closed, our terrific library employees are here to help you navigate the many remote services and resources we have available. Students, staff, and faculty can access research help and other support via chat, email, and video appointments. You can access our online databases, streaming videos, ebooks, and more from the search box on the library home page. For more information, please see PCC Library Resources and Help When Off Campus.

We look forward to welcoming you back to the campus libraries once PCC facilities reopen. In the meantime, here are some library resources we would like to highlight:

While access to physical materials is not available at this time, you can request electronic resources through interlibrary loan.

Due to restricted access to PCC locations we ask you to not return any items that you have currently checked out. You will not be charged for late returns. Due dates will be extended and fines will be forgiven. If you have a question about returning library items please use the Library Account Question form.

Please use the library’s Suggestion Box to share your ideas about improvements to library services or if you have a question. Updates about library operations will continue to be posted on the PCC Library website and Facebook page.

While college classes and services are being offered remotely due to the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, PCC Library continues with our focus to provide you with access to research sources and library services that are important to your academic and workplace success. I wish you all the best in the coming term.
