For SJSU Students, Faculty, and Staff

Borrowing from the SJSU Library

Your student ID is your new SJSU library card. You'll sign into your library account the same way you sign in to Canvas. There is no limit on the number of items SJSU borrowers can check out. Loan periods are:

  • Undergraduate students: 16 weeks from date of checkout, no renewals

  • Graduate students: 16 weeks from date of checkout, 5 renewals

  • Faculty & staff: 1 year from date of checkout, 10 renewals
