Library to Go

Due to COVID-19, the Libraries have made some changes to how you pick up physical materials during the Fall 2020 semester. You will need to place a "hold" on the item using our catalog, and pick up the materials at the circulation desk, inside Folsom Library.

How to place a "hold" on physical materials from the library this semester.

  1. Search The Catalog for an item (example: "Vietnam")
  2. Click on item
  3. Click on "Place Hold" button
