We've Gone Remote

As we approach the end of the spring semester we would like to encourage those with any items that are not a laptop or hotspot to please feel free to drop them off in the library dropboxes at both campuses. If you have a library laptop, hotpspot, or calculator to return please use this link for details and times for a drive-thru drop-off. We will accept all items at this drop off if you are unable to use a dropbox. ALL library items are due back May 29th. If you are unable to return your items please contact us immediately so that we can be sure to note your account.


The Allan Hancock College Library building will be physically closed for the time being. Users can still access the many digital resources of the library 24/7, such as the article databasese-booksstreaming films, and the library catalog.  Please visit our COVID-19 Resources page for additional helpful links.
