To borrow items from the library, students need an SCC student ID card. Faculty and staff can use their SCC ID card to borrow materials. ID Cards are available at the Bookstore.
Our library allows non-students to sign up for a community patron card. Community Cards are given at the ASK desk in the library. Items checked out on a Community Card have different due dates and some items are not available for checkout through this card.
The borrowing periods that are outlined below for each type of library item are general rules. Occasionally there are special circumstances for particular items that may override these rules. Log in to your library account online to check the due date for materials you currently have checked out. In all cases the due date provided to you at the point of check out is the final word on when your items need to be returned.
Limits vary depending upon the type of patron. Students with a Shoreline ID card, staff, and faculty can check out a maximum of 25 items. Members of the general public (community patrons) are limited to a total of 10 items.
In addition to these general limits, the following item-type limits also exist:
As an SCC student, you can also borrow materials (using your SCC student ID) from libraries at other WA state community and technical colleges such as Edmonds Community College, Everett Community College, the Seattle Community Colleges, and Bellevue Community College.
*Please note that most of these are campus-use only, and some are retricted to faculty/staff, or students who have received training in film classes here. Realia on course Reserve is first-come, first-served, two-hour checkout, but other equipment may be reserved in advance.
