Finding Books at MSJC





Borrowing Items Between MSJC Campuses

You can request items to be delivered between the MVC and SJC Libraries if you find a book that is not available at the campus you use.

During the COVID-19 campus closure, text library staff at 951-783-4977 to place the request for you, or use the steps below to place the request yourself from your search results in the library catalog.

  1. From your search results page, click on the title of the book to get to the full record page. 
  2. In the Get It section, click in the yellow bar "Please sign in to check if there are any request options" to sign in to your library account using your mymsjc username and password.
  3. Click on the Request option and fill in any necessary information.
  4. You will be notified through your student email in 2-3 days when the book is available for pick up.

NOTE: Text us at 951-783-4977 to arrange a time to pick-up your requested item(s)

Finding and Requesting Items from Other Libraries

If you don't find what you need in MSJC's collections, you can search the catalogs of other libraries and request that those titles be sent to your preferred MSJC campus through our interlibrary loan service. Typically there is no cost to you for this service, but please be aware that some libraries charge interlibrary loan fees. We will contact you for approval of any borrowing fees before requesting the items for you. It can take up to two weeks for items to be delivered, so be sure you give yourself enough time.

  1. Try UCR's catalog. Because UCR is so close, any books you request may get here more quickly if they are available..
  2. Request the books you found by filling out the MSJC Interlibrary Loan Request form and we will notify you at your student e-mail you when your books arrive.
