Normally I check out books at the library’s circulation desk, but now the library is closed due to the pandemic. What do I do?
The DVC Library is now offering a Contactless Locker Pickup service as a safe and easy way of checking out print library books to DVC faculty, staff, and currently enrolled students.
Follow these steps to request library books:
1. Use the DVC Catalog (OneSearch) to place your request for a print book. Watch the video below to learn how to request a book for pickup using OneSearch.
2. Wait for a confirmation email from firstname.lastname@example.org notifying you that your books are ready to pick up.
3. Follow the instructions you receive in the confirmation email. Books must be picked up within 7 days.
4. If you would like some guidance on how to get to the lockers to pick up your books once you are on campus, watch the video at the bottom.
PLEASE NOTE: Media, Reserve, and Reference books are not included in this service, only books from the main collection marked DVC Stacks.
Requests are not filled on weekends, non-instructional days, nor holidays.
For questions or assistance, please contact us at email@example.com or call us at 925-969-2610.
