Resource Sharing

You can borrow books, movies, and articles from other libraries using the services listed below.

Requesting Books and Articles

To get the resource you need as quickly as possible, follow the procedure below. Call (925) 631-4229 for more information.

Start by using the Library Search box to search by title of the item you hope to find. If we own the book or subscribe to the journal, you should see access information there.

If we do not have the title you want

  1. Sign in to Library Search with your SMC credentials, and then select "Didn't find what you were looking for? Click here to expand your search"
  2. If available at one of our partner institutions, you'll see the title. Then click "Get it for me from other libraries"


For Articles and Book Chapters

Items requested will typically be emailed to you within 24 hours.

For Books

Full books can not be digitized and will need to be delivered to campus via the US Postal Service. This can take up to two weeks.
