As a member of San Diego Circuit, UC San Diego Library patrons are allowed to quickly borrow books from other Circuit libraries if the books are not owned by the UC San Diego Library or if the Library’s copy is already checked-out.
Starting next month, another member institution – San Diego State University (SDSU) – will transition to a new Library Management System. As it does so, SDSU will cease lending its items through the Circuit. This will go into effect on Friday, May 26 and continue through mid-July. Some things for our users to note:
- SDSU items will still display in the Circuit catalog, but their statuses will say “Local Use Only,” and UC San Diego users will be unable to submit requests for these items.
- SDSU will continue to receive returns from UC San Diego users.
- Visitor Checkout will no longer be available for UC San Diego users on-site at SDSU. This is a permanent change.
- Visitor Checkout will no longer be available for SDSU users on-site at UC San Diego. This is a permanent change.
We apologize for the short notice and any inconvenience this may cause.
8/1/2017 Update: Users can request books from all Circuit partner libraries.
