Kathleen Taffel, OCP Librarian

The OCP librarian is available to provide assistance to all Off-Campus students.  Although he is housed at the Chelmsford campus she is available for assistance via phone and email on Fridays from 4:30 to 9:00 PM and on Saturdays from 9:00AM – 1:00 PM.  The librarian assists with electronic database searches; the APA standards; access to Mugar Library’s on-line resources; researching appropriate educational materials.


Off-Campus Programs Advisors
Each off campus site has its own set of advisors.  Advisors serve a dual role as field liaisons and academic advisors for curriculum and program planning for each student.  In addition, they act as supports, guides, and mentors to our students.  If you believe a student is struggling in either the classroom or in the field, please contact the advisor and the Director.
