Concord Campus Library - Fall 2021

For Fall Semester 2021, the Concord Campus Library will be open Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 10 am - 6 pm. Any daily changes to this schedule will be noted on the front doors.

The Concord Campus Library

The Concord Campus Library consists primarily of circulating books, including course reserve items (textbooks). Access to most circulating materials are housed at the Hayward campus and can be obtained through requesting an item via the library catalog and our paging system (courier service).

Online access to databases is available 24/7 to authorized users (i.e., with your netID and password). If you need help finding information, our reference services are available online 24 hours/day and 7 days/week.

Study Space

The Concord Campus Administration is providing study space and wifi access in the computer lab in Contra Costa Hall that is prepped for social distancing.

The Concord Campus Union has also been configured for social distancing and has good wifi access.

They will monitor use and will add more areas as the situation warrants.

How to Get a Library Book

When you find a book you need in the Library Catalog, SIGN IN with your campus netID and password and then you can click on the REQUEST button to have it sent from Hayward or CSU+, to the Concord Campus Library. You have the choice to pick up library materials at the Hayward or Concord campuses, as well as via mail. Books requested via CSU+ as well as any located in the Concord Campus Library will be made available in the same way.

To pick up books at the Hayward Campus Library go to the courtyard in front of the entrance to the Library, M-F. If you have items sent to the Concord Campus Library, you will receive an email letting you know when they are available to pick up at the Academic Services counter. For more information on requesting books, please see our FAQ.

For a chapter scan, please submit an ILL request or email with book title, author, year of publication, edition, chapter/pages.
