You may opt to purchase a replacement copy for the library.

  • Replacement copies must be the exact edition and format as the original item.
  • If you are billed for a lost item but then return the item, the replacement cost will be waived.

Please contact the Circulation Desk at (916) 484-8455 to assist you with selecting an acceptable replacement before you make your purchase or if you have questions. Please leave a voicemail with your student ID and a number to call back.
