Library Card

To check out any resources or access articles and ebooks off campus, you must have an EVC student ID card. If you do not have a student ID card, you may pick one up at Admissions and Records.

Transferring

Transferring Books from SJCC

If you are searching the catalog and find that the book you need is located at SJCC, you may:
