Can I use the CSM Library if I'm not a student?


Yes, the CSM Library is a public space and open to all, including non-CSM students, the San Mateo community, and CSM Alumni. Anyone can use the CSM Library and library computers, and all users can print (see more information about printing on campus). The CSM Library is an "open stacks" library meaning anyone can browse our shelves and access our books.

If you would like to check out books please bring a photo ID and talk to the CSM Library Circulation desk to set-up a Community Member or Alumni account, or apply for an account online at the SMCCCD OneSearch User's Guide.

Please visit CSM's Maps, Directions, and Parking page to learn more about transportation and parking on campus.
