Books & General Collection Items

As a current PCC Faculty and staff member, you have the same borrowing rules as students. However, you have a loan period of 6 weeks for general collection items and will not be charged overdue fines.

You will need your PCC LancerCard with you in order to check out materials. If an item is lost or damaged, you are obligated to pay our replacement cost for the item plus a $10.00 processing fee.


Media Reserves and Equipment

We have video materials and reserved media equipment available for faculty & staff use.

You may check-out the video materials (VHS & DVD) for 1 week. Contact mediaservices@pasadena.edu prior to borrowing to make sure materials are available when you need them.

Our media equipment is available at the Library's Circulation Desk. You can pick up and return equipment during the Library's open hours. If you need equipment before 7:30 am or if you need technical assistance, please contact us at (626) 585-7292.


Reciprocal Borrowing Agreements

As a PCC employee, you can check books out from the Cal State LA Library and Glendale Community College Library. All public libraries have universal borrowing policies, which means anyone can obtain a card.

If an item is not available in our vicinity, you can make a request it through our Interlibrary Loan (ILL). Fill out an ILL form at the Reference Desk or submit the online Interlibrary Loan Form. Contact Lauren Bauer at (626) 585-3309 if you have additional questions about ILL.
