Textbook Loan (Course Reserves) Request
Welcome to our textbook request page! For the safety of our students and staff, we won't be able to provide our typical in-person services. We are implementing this process by which you submit your request online and we will contact you for pick-up if your loan is approved. To reduce the amount of shared contact with textbooks, your loan will not be due back until the end of the summer session.
Our staff is dedicated to helping you. Please read the following information carefully.
To qualify for book loans
1) you must be currently enrolled for the Summer 2020 session
2) you are able to present one of the following: your EVC/SJCC Student ID card, valid driver's license/California ID, proof of registration or confirmation email
