Guide to Library Resources

We're glad you're here!

book shelvesThis guide is intended to help you get familiar with CCSF Library resources.

The library can help you:

  • determine or adjust a research topic
  • find sources (such as articles, books, magazines, and videos) for an assignment
  • create or edit a citation (or reference)
  • and more!

Use the navigation tabs in this guide to learn more about your library access.


The library is open!

Students may use the library during open hours. Masks are strongly recommended. No food is permitted.



Remote Access

An active RAM ID (student ID number) and RAM ID password is required for off-campus access to CCSF Library subscription resources and databases, including online articles, streaming video, and e-books. When accessing these resources from off-campus, users will be prompted to log in with RAM ID, then will be able to view resources as if they are on-campus.
