Cesar E. Chavez Library
New this spring! Search and place a hold on your digital textbook title or reserve book from home in our OneSearch catalog. After you place a hold for your item, library staff will get back to you to confirm a pickup appointment. If you want to borrow a laptop or a hotspot instead, you must still fill out a Request Form.
Items no longer requiring the request form, include calculators, ESL Non-credit Textbooks, and short term textbook loans. Stop by the Library Circulation Desk to borrow these items and more during open hours. For on-campus visits, please observe campus safety policies for COVID-19 when visiting the library.
If you are attending classes online, visit the SJCC Library Online Support page.
