During the COVID-19 closure, the CCSF Library is up and running with online services. The library is here to help you and your students with virtual research sessions, online research help, and more.
Our library databases are up and running, and can be accessed using your RAM ID and password. Through our databases, we offer magazine, newspaper, and scholarly journal articles. These can serve as alternate course readings (by providing students with a permalink to the item.) Library databases also contain primary sources, videos, art and photography images, and encyclopedia/reference material.

According to our library colleagues at Guelph, "Approximately 85% of existing course textbooks are simply unavailable to libraries in any other format than print." Physical copies of reserve textbooks are not available while the CCSF libraries are closed, and we are unable to digitize them for individual use.
Explore Open Educational Resources (OER) for new content! OER are openly licensed, always free to access online, and can be embedded or integrated into Canvas.
Find out more by visiting the CCSF OER Guide.
While we do not have traditional textbooks online, check out the CCSF library's collection of eBooks! Go to OneSearch, select "Books & Media," type in your search query, and then filter your results down to "Available Online."
