Requesting Materials: Library To Go and Interlibrary Loan

open book illustrationLibrary-to-Go is a service that allows current students, staff, and faculty to request books, CD audiobooks, and DVDs from our library’s general collection and from other SCCCD libraries for easy, quick pick up at the campus library during open hours. Start by signing in to the CCC OneSearch Catalog to locate and request the items you wish to check out. Library staff will pull the items from the shelves and you will be notified when they are ready for pick up at the library. (Note that this service is for general collection items and does not apply to reserve items like textbooks and anatomy models)

If you wish to request a book not owned by any of our SCCCD libraries including ours, fill out an Interlibrary Loan Request. We are capable of searching hundreds of libraries throughout the country for the items you need. Because items are from outside of our college and district and often outside of the state, interlibrary loan requests may take at least two weeks to fill.
