Textbook Reserves

The Yuba College Library reserve collection consists of textbooks and other materials made available for students to support them in their classes. The materials on reserve are available to students for a short circulation period — 2 hours, 1 day, 4 days, or 1 week — depending on the needs of the class and the instructions we receive from the faculty. For fines, please see Circulation and Rules.

Interlibrary Loans

If you are a student or staff looking for an article from a magazine that we do not subscribe to, or need a specific book the Library does not own, our staff might be able to locate them for you.

Borrowed materials are usually loaned for 2-3 weeks, but are set by the lending library. The loan can be renewed if the lending library allows. Please give the Library 3 days’ notice if you want to renew.

Limit your requests to 3 items at a time, including those already filled or in process. Pick up and return items on time. Fines for lost, damaged or overdue books are set by the lender. Fees not paid will be placed on your college account. Non-compliance with procedures may jeopardize your loan privileges. Submit an Interlibrary Loan Form
