A limited number of the textbooks required for your coursework--called reserve texts--are available to check out on a first-come basis at the Redwood and Riverside Campus Libraries. Please call ahead to check availability and arrange for pickup. You will need to know your course number, instructor's name, and the title(s) of the text you need. This information should be in your syllabus.

Texts cannot be placed on hold via the library catalog: call the individual branch to verify availability and place a hold.

All library materials including reserve textbooks are due March 25, 2021.
