I need to check out or renew library materials

To check out books, you will need your Tower card. You can use the self-checkout machines on the 1st Floor of the library or take your items to the Circulation Desk. For more details, see Borrowing and Requesting.

To renew items, log into your OneSearch Account with your SJSUOne ID number and password. Here you will be able to renew any items.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The King Library is a dual-use library and offers books from the San Jose Public Library as well as from SJSU. You will need a San Jose Public Library card to check out and renew their items. Don't have one? Just take your current SJSU student ID to the Circulation Desk on the 1st Floor and they will give you one. You can renew public library items online or by phone at 1-408-808-2665.

How do you tell which is which?

  • SJSU items will have a barcode that begins with 308000

  • Public library items will have a barcode that begins with 31197 or 81197.
