Additional Information:

  • Library materials (books and calculators) have a 1-month loan period. 
  • Laptops are loaned out for the current semester and must be returned at the end of semester.
  • Laptops and print (hard copy) books must be reserved online. Walk-in service is not available.
  • Miramar College does not provide any technical assistance laptops that are checked out to students.  Laptops that students check out are considered a personal device for the duration of the checkout period.  Students may configure and/or install software however they wish, but as with a personal laptop, students will need to arrange their own technical support if any is needed.
  • Students who were unable to pick up their reserved items from a previous event must re-submit their online reservations.
  • There are no renewals for materials checked out during the Summer 2021 semester. Be sure to return library materials by their due dates in order to avoid accruing fines.
  • Failure to return checked out materials on one of the above-mentioned dates will result in a negative hold being placed on your student account. This negative hold will restrict your enrollment activity, access to grades and transcripts, and withhold your degree or diploma.
  • If you already have an existing hold on your student account, please return the overdue materials and contact the Miramar Library staff at avmira@sdccd.edu to pay your fines and have your hold removed.

For questions regarding this process, please call (619) 388-7310 and leave a message, along with your contact info and college ID number. Staff will be checking messages (Mon.-Fri., 8:00am-5:00pm) and will do their best to respond by the next business day or sooner, when possible.  You may also email us at avmira@sdccd.edu.
