Q. Can I have books and/or other materials from the Library mailed to me?


Yes, you can! Please note: Requesting services are only available to current SF State students, staff, and faculty. You can get access to physical collections from our Library and other libraries by doing the following:

  1. Submit your request. If you have questions about how to submit a request for items from the Library's collections, click here. If you have questions about how to submit a request for items at other libraries via interlibrary services (CSU+ & ILLiad), click here. Be sure to enter your current address on the request form.
  2. You will receive an email notification once your item is ready to be mailed. Please note that it may take up to 7 days for items from the Library’s collections to be ready, and it may take 2-3 weeks for items requested via interlibrary services to be ready. Please allow for additional time for shipping.
  3. When you are finished with the items, you can return them to one of the Library's book returns (see map below) or you can mail them to:

Circulation Services, J. Paul Leonard Library, 1630 Holloway Avenue, San Francisco, CA 94132.

If you have questions, please email circmail@sfsu.edu and we will follow up with you as soon as possible.
