Using OneSearch in the new libraries' catalog

Cañada College, Skyline College and College of San Mateo joined 109 other California community colleges in a new library catalog that is the same catalog used by California State University libraries and most University of California campus libraries. Called OneSearch, students may log in with the same information they use to log in to Canvas. A Peninsula Library System library account is no longer needed to access college resources.

Library Services

Printing costs 12 cents a page. Buy a printing card for 50 cents and add money near the copy machines. 

Group Study Rooms  may be reserved up to one week ahead and the library classroom may be used for group study.

The library has many textbooks on reserve that students can check out for 2 hours, one day or three days. Ask at the front desk to see if your textbook is available or check online.  

The library's 71 computers do not require you to log in and there is no time limit.

Research appointments with librarians give you the help you need with research or citations.
