Information Literacy diagram

Formal library orientation classes are taught by librarians on a first-come, first-served reservation basis. Instructors interested in having a presentation done for their class should schedule it at least one week in advance. Contact the Instruction Librarian to make arrangements. A reservation form is available online or at the Circulation Desk.



Reserve Desk

Instructors who wish to put items on Reserve should fill out a form and turn it in to the staff at the Circulation Desk. Processing may take up to three working days until the materials are available for student use. Contact Carol Reagan at (619) 388-7618 for further information.


Suggestions for Purchase

Books For Purchase

Faculty recommendations for additions or deletions to our collection will help keep the Library vital, current and responsive to the college's curriculum changes.

To help develop our ever-expanding collection, faculty can recommend that the Library:

  • Purchase books/DVDs on subjects that the Library needs more information
  • Purchase specific titles that support your instructional programs
  • Discard specific titles that are dated or obsolete

Each librarian has been assigned a specific subject area to develop. See our Library Staff directory to contact the person responsible for the collection in your subject area.
