Services for Visitors


Students, staff, faculty and alums from any CSU campus may check out CSUEB materials provided they have the following:

  • A valid ID from their home institution.
  • Must provide proof of current registration, class schedule, documentation of current employment or current alumni association membership status. (A course syllabus will not be accepted as verification of current enrollment)

Final approval of CSUEB Library privileges is at the discretion of the CSUEB Library Access Services staff.


Patrons may borrow CSU East Bay Library items through the LINK+ Visiting Patron program if the patron’s home library is a participant. The patron must present:

  • A valid card from their home library
  • A valid photo ID (i.e. Driver’s License, State ID Card or Passport)

The loan period is 3 weeks with one possible renewal for an additional 3 weeks. The patron  can return materials to their home library or to the library where the items were checked out. Visiting Patrons must contact their home library for renewals.

Not sure if you have Link+ access? Check to see if you have a library card from a Member Library.
