Q. How do I request books and/or other materials from the Library's collections?

Answer

You can request books from the Library's collections by following five easy steps (described below). Please note: Requesting services are only available to current SF State students, staff, and faculty. On your request form, you will need to designate whether you would like to pick the book up (starting Feb. 8, 2021) in the Library or if you would prefer to have the book mailed to you. For help requesting books from the Library's collections, please email circmail@sfsu.edu.

 

Step 1: On the Library's homepage, select the Books & Media link beneath the search box.
