Ogeechee Technical College Library in the Spotlight!

Ogeechee Technical College (OTC) is a unit of the Technical College System of Georgia serving Bulloch, Evans, Screven, and surrounding counties. Established in 1986, Ogeechee Technical College is a public institution of higher education that contributes to the economic, educational, and personal growth of the individual and the communities it serves. It offers over 120 programs in business, health, industrial/natural resources, and personal/public health. The total enrollment for AY 16 was 2,872 and the College employs 160 full-time, and numerous part-time, employees.

In our library, we offer our students a warm welcome,  61 computers, printing of assignments, over 8,000 books, over 40,000 items on Galileo, 36 magazine subscriptions, assistance with technology, and research classes.  However, as more and more students are doing research at home and reading from a computer, it is challenging to maintain consistent use of our small library. 

Librarians decided that teaching research skills to various classes was not going to be enough.   We sent e-mails to instructors and asked for suggested events the library could host to enhance their curriculum.  One faculty member responded that she would like to get her Early Childhood Education students involved in  book character activities, so we planned a pumpkin character-making activity.  A local store donated the pumpkins and gourds, and the library supplied the paint. It was such an inspiration to watch college students be creative.  Once the pumpkins were painted, we displayed them in the library and later took them to a local nursing home to be used as decorations for their fall festival.  Many of those same students return regularly to the library to work on homework or to simply say "hello".  In March we are planning our first faculty, alumni, and student Quiz Bowl Challenge.

    My name is Michael Lee a citizen of Illinois, USA. i have been scammed by 7 different Internet international lender, they all promise to give me a loan after making me pay several fees which yield nothing and amounted to no positive result. i lost my hard earn money and it was a total of 23930USD. One day as i was browsing through the internet with tears on my eye i came across a testimony of man who was also scammed and eventually got linked to a legit loan company called MARTINEZ LEXIE LOAN COMPANY where he finally got his loan, so i decided to contact the same loan company and then told them my story on how i have been scammed by 7 different lenders who did nothing but to course me more pain. I explain to the company by mail and all they told me was to cry no more because i will get my loan in their company and also i have made the right choice of contacting them. I filled the loan application form and proceeded with all that was requested of me and to my greatest surprise my loan was granted to me without further delay and here i am today happy because Martinez Lexie Loan Company HAS GIVEN ME A REASON TO LIVE, so i made a vow to my self that i will keep testifying on the internet on how i got my loan.
