Checking out a book

If you have found a physical book available in Pfau Library, you will need to:

  1. Get the book from the shelf.
  2. Take it to the Check-Out Desk on the 1st floor.
  3. Present your Coyote OneCard (campus ID card) to check it out. 


When you start on the library's home page, OneSearch looks like this, so make sure to choose the CSUSB limit!
