Check-Out / Renewals

Student being helped by front-desk librarian

CSUSB students, faculty, and staff, your Coyote OneCard is your library card and is nontransferable. Lending it to anyone is a violation of university regulations. If your Coyote OneCard is lost or damaged, or your name has changed, obtain a replacement from the Technology Support Center.

Not one of the above? See Alumni or Community & Visitors to find out how to get a library card.

Detailed Information on Check-Out Periods, Renewals, Overdue Fees, & More:

Did you know that we have a lot more to check out than books? Laptops, calculators, video equipment, and charging rings are just a few examples. What else can I check out from the library?
