Contact-Free Pickup

Students are able to place holds on many library materials (including laptops, Chromebooks, WiFi hotspots, books, course reserves, and Associated Students (AS) Bookloan books) and schedule appointments to pick them up using a contact-free pickup service at the Rosenberg Library on Ocean Campus, Chinatown/North Beach Center, John Adams Center and Mission Center.

The process may take a week (from the time you place your request, to the day you pick it up.)

For answers to frequently asked questions, please visit the CCSF Library FAQs.


  1. Use the 'Books & Media' tab for OneSearch from the Library website to find and request library materials, including course reserves, Chromebooks, wifi hotspots, and laptops. Make sure you are requesting materials from the library you want! Items from one library cannot be sent to another. For example, a book requested from John Adams must be picked up at John Adams.
    1. For easy access to the library's technology available to borrow, visit the library's technology page. From there, request the item and follow the instructions below.
