You need to have a current CCSF photo ID card to borrow materials. Visit Library Cards for information on how to get a CCSF ID card or a community card.
Newly registered noncredit students without a CCSF ID card may be able to get a temporary library card with proof of registration. Please contact the specific center library for more information.
The Reserve collections contain materials for specific courses. Only currently registered CCSF students may borrow reserve materials. Loan periods vary: 1 hour to 168 hours (7 days) and cannot be renewed. Some materials must only be used in the library. Only 2 reserve items may be checked out at a time. Some materials that are part of a pair, such as a textbook and companion workbook, may be treated as one item for checkout.
|Patron Type||Circulation Collection Loan Period||Number of Renewals||Maximum Number of Items|
|Faculty||1 semester||None, only on a semester basis||50|
|Community Card Holder||3 weeks||2||2|
A patron may request that an item be held for her/him when returned by another borrower. Look up the item in OneSearch, and find the request button. Requesting an item will prevent the current borrower from renewing it.
The library's inter-center loan service moves most circulating materials between center libraries on request. Reference and reserve materials may not be requested via inter-center loan. To request an item, find the item in OneSearch and click on the request button.
