OCOM Library is the natural remedy for information stagnation. Students, faculty, and alumni will find an inquisitive and supportive community of researchers, along with a collection of print and digital resources primed to help them master their academic studies, encourage inquiry, and continue on as research-literate practitioners.


The Oregon College of Oriental Medicine (OCOM) Library supports the learning, teaching, research, and information needs of the OCOM community. In addition, the library serves as an information resource on acupuncture and Oriental medicine to health professionals and to the general public. The library strives to develop, maintain, and provide relevant information resources and services. All library staff work together as a team in fulfilling this mission.

About the Collection

OCOM is proud to have one of the most comprehensive acupuncture libraries in the United States. The college also subscribes to many of the major acupuncture and alternative medicine journals. Visit our collection in person, or access the collection online by using Primo, our search discovery tool. OCOM is a member of the Portland Area Health Libraries (PAHL) consortium, an inter-disciplinary partnership between the libraries at OCOM, National University of Naturopathic Medicine, University of Western States, and Oregon Health and Science University. Using Primo, users can search the collections at all four libraries, and request materials be delivered to OCOM. Additionally, our Interlibrary Loan service provides users with access to any journals or books not normally available from the library's print or online collections.
