Masks are still available at the library entrance for those who wish to further protect themselves and others.
The eating restrictions in the library are also lifted. Please clean up and stay courteous to everyone in the library.
The library’s virtual services will also be available throughout the fall semester. The popular 24/7 librarian chat feature is also available for students and faculty working remotely, as are Zoom, email, and phone consultations.
Students, faculty, and staff can request materials from our collections through the OneSearch feature, and will be notified by email when items are ready to pick up. Learn how to request books and media through our paging service. The stacks will be open for browsing starting August 9th.
Tech Lending items can be requested through our website and be picked up at the desk. We have a large number of new devices for students this fall, including high-performance laptops.

The CSU+ and Interlibrary Loan Services have also restarted, and items can be picked up at the library.
