Checking books out (a.k.a. borrowing books)
You need to be a currently registered CSUSB student and have either a physical or virtual Coyote OneCard student ID. Take the books you want to check out to the Check-Out Desk, and show or scan your OneCard.
Keeping checked out books
You can keep most books for 8 weeks plus one automatic renewal = 16 weeks total.
Inside the library, at the Check-Out Desk. Outside the library, at our two Library Return boxes.
Paying fines online
With your My Library Account. Keep track of due dates, and much much more. Sign on with your normal MyCoyote login.
