Borrowing & Renewing
Borrowing privileges and renewing guidelines

All Long Beach City College and California State University Long Beach students, faculty, and staff can check out library materials. Non-students and community members can check out items which are currently in print by putting down a deposit for the item plus a $10, (all refundable), for each item checked out. Another option is to obtain a referral from any Long Beach Public Library. There is a limit of two (2) items per non-Long Beach City College borrower.


Interlibrary Loan (ILL)
Borrow research materials from other libraries

Interlibrary Loan is a free service available to current Long Beach City College students, faculty, and staff. If the book or article you need for your academic research is not held in the Long Beach City College Library, Interlibrary Loan (ILL) can try to obtain it for you from other libraries, both in this country and abroad.

In order to use interlibrary loan, log on to the WorldCat Database, and use the following guide to assist you.
