CCC Library - Online Tour

Stop A1

The Circulation Desk is is the place to:

  • Check out and return books, periodicals, reserve materials, media programs (for in-library use) and telecourse videos.
  • Request interlibrary loan books from Diablo Valley College or Los Medanos College (although you can place your own holds, too, via the online catalog).
  • Pay for lost or overdue materials.

You will need a valid photo identification card to check out any materials. The preferred form of ID is your CCC student identification card for the current semester. This bar-coded ID may be obtained in the Associated Students Office in the Student Activities Building.

Stop A2

Reserves are housed behind the Circulation Desk.

  • Course Reserve items have been "reserved" by instructors for library-only use, so that everyone in a class has access to them. This collection may include textbooks, lab manuals, solution guides, article reprints, old tests, telecourse videos, and some reference materials.
  • General Reserves include the college district's board agendas and reports, accreditation studies, local city council minutes, and some frequently-used and/or valuable reference books.

Most reserve items are for 2-hour use in the library only. Some reserve items may be checked out overnight. (See the Circulation page for additional information.)

Use a computer or the terminal on the Circulation Desk to find the call number of the item you need, or ask the reference librarian to show you how to search for Reserves.

In the image below, a box is drawn around the call number in the first 2 results on the list. If you wanted the book Essential Biology, you would ask the Circulation Desk staff for book 7.16.
