Library Catalog
Start with the library catalog to see if the library owns it. (Note: when looking up materials in the library catalog, make sure that your spelling is correct if you are searching by Author, Title, Keyword, Subject or Call Number).

CSU+ is a free interlibrary loan service students, faculty and staff may use to borrow books that are checked out or not available at the CSUEB Libraries. Books may be requested from any of the 22 other campuses of the California State University. Books are usually delivered within 2-4 days.

Interlibrary Loan (ILL)
If the item isn't in the library catalog then you can request the title via InterLibrary Loan (ILL).

Log on and fill out the request form. To make sure that you get the requested item as quickly as possible, give as much of the publication information as possible including: Author, Title, Publisher, Date and Place of Publication.

Search for the book in other Bay Area libraries.
