How do I request a book from LAVC Library (or another LACCD Library) to be put on hold for me?


Want to save time when you're on campus? You can request a book from LAVC Library or from one of the other 9 LACCD Libraries to be pulled from the shelf and put on hold for you at the LAVC Library Circulation Desk to pick up. 

First, find your book using LAVC Library OneSearch

Click on the title of the book. Look for the yellow "Get It" bar in the middle of the page and use it to Sign In to your library account.

You will be redirected to the Student Portal login screen. Please login as you normally would for Canvas. If needed, use the help links located beneath the login boxes.

Once you are logged in, you will be redirected back to OneSearch and you'll see that the yellow Get It bar has been replaced by a Request link. Click it to request the book.

All you have to do now is to click the orange "Send Request" button.

You'll receive an email to your LACCD student email account when your books are ready to be picked up at the LAVC Library front circulation desk. Please note, these emails often go to SPAM or JUNK email folders so be sure to check those if you're waiting for a book.
