Moorpark College Library: Student Guide: Doing Research - Books & eBooks

A guide to library services for students at Moorpark College.

Contactless Hold Pickup

The Moorpark College Library is now offering Contactless Hold Pickup. You may place holds through our catalog on Main Collection items to be picked up at the library. We are currently scheduled to fulfill holds on Tuesdays. You may pick up your items on Tuesdays 9:00 AM-2:00 PM and Fridays 8:30 AM-12:00 PM.

We aim to have requests ready for pickup starting the Tuesday after the request is placed; however, please wait until you receive an email notice from us that says your item is ready for pickup. This notice will have important pickup information for you.

If you cannot pick up your item the week we notify you, don't worry! We will continue to hold it and allow you to pick it up the following two Tuesdays and Fridays. Learn more about contactless pickup here.
