On July 18, 2017, CCSF joined LINK+, a network of libraries in California and Nevada that share books and library materials through an interlibrary loan program. This means that students and the College community will be able to borrow materials from member libraries and have them delivered to any CCSF Library. As of August 2018, the library added collections from John Adams, Chinatown/North Beach, Downtown and Mission Centers to the mix.
Using LINK+ is easy. After searching CCSF Library's OneSearch, if you don’t find what you are looking for, click on the LINK+ button to repeat the search. You can then place a hold on anything that you would like to order. Materials typically arrive in 4-5 days. Find out more on the LINK+ page.
