Visitor Information



Visitors with an interest in education, especially area educators, are welcome to use the resources of Cubberley Education Library.

The Education Library is partially accessible to persons with limited mobility. An elevator on the first floor provides wheelchair access. Ask at the loan desk for help obtaining library materials.

Requesting Materials

Though much of our collection is readily available in open stacks, items in our catalog SearchWorks which give "Ask at Loan Desk" as the location need to be paged before 5:00 p.m. on weekdays. If you need them evenings or weekends, please send email to in advance of your visit. Another part of our collection is kept off campus at SAL3. Page these items using the links in Searchworks. Requests submitted before 12:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, will usually be available for pick up after 4:00 p.m. on the next business day.


If you wish to check out materials and are not part of one of the cooperative programs, you may purchase borrowing privileges in Green Library. For questions regarding access and borrowing privileges, consult with staff at 650 723-2121.
