When you need more resources, think outside the building. Material not included in our collection may be borrowed from other libraries. The below services support the information needs of College faculty, students, and staff.
Link+ is a consortium of libraries within California and Nevada. Search the catalog to make a request. Books and DVDs are delivered in less than a week for pick-up at the Circulation desk or a participating pick-up library. Call (925) 631-4229 for more information.
Create an ILLiad account to request, track, and get material from other libraries anywhere you have internet access. Articles and book chapters are usually posted to your account within a week. Books can be picked up at the Circulation desk within a month. (You can also use this service to request that print material included in the Saint Mary's library collection be digitized and delivered to you. We also mail books to home addresses. This service is available for faculty, staff, graduate students, distant learners, and patrons with disabilities.) Call (925) 631-4229 for more information.
The Northern California Consortium of Psychology Libraries joins together small library and information centers which serve psychology and mental health communities. About 15 libraries participate in the reciprocal borrowing program, and this service requires a referral from the Circulation desk. Please call (925) 631-4624 for more information.
