The University Library has closed in-person services. We are still providing online services. For research and library services visit the side links and the FAQ's below.
Beginning May 11, 2020, you may return library books, DVD & CD disks (check-outs from Stan State Library, through CSU+ & Interlibrary Loan) to the two book drops on campus. The book drops are located by the Reflecting Pond and by the Library Annex LX25.
Library loans that were due during the library closure have all been extended. We will also waive overdue fines incurred during the current semester. If you have any questions please contact Library Circulation Department at firstname.lastname@example.org.
(Rental textbooks from the campus Bookstore should be returned to the Bookstore, not the Library book drops.)
The study rooms, Library Annex 8, 9, and 26, are currently closed, as well as the circulation and research desk in Library Annex 25. If you have any questions please contact email@example.com.
The Circulation desk in Library Annex 25 is currently closed. Course Reserves materials in print format are not accessible at this point. We are, however, able to locate some of the reserves items in electronic format and will continue to look for more.
Please consult this list to find out if materials assigned to your class are available in electronic format. You may have to create a personal account to access some of the books (for ex., RedShelf, Bookshelf). If the items assigned to your course are noted as ‘Not available’, please consult your instructor for further advice.
Most of these materials will not be available after the end of the semester, May 25, 2020.
Quick tip on creating an account to access free resources:
The University Library will continue to have access to digital materials, including media, ebooks, articles, databases and more, available to you off-campus. Use OneSearch to find these online resources. You will need to log-in to acquire materials using your campus username and password. Articles, books, and videos in print format are not available due to the closure of Library Annex 25.
Ask us for help, via email or chat, if you have any questions.
You can get access to some software tools by visiting the Licensed Software Tools page on OIT’s website to learn about what software is available to students, including temporary at-home access due to COVID-19. Tools listed include Adobe Creative Cloud, Microsoft Office, SPSS Statistics, and VoiceThread. Please be aware, some of this software is only temporarily accessible off-campus.
We can digitally deliver journal articles from the University Library collection and from other libraries directly to your campus e-mail via Interlibrary Loan. Use OneSearch to search for articles and journals online. However, you cannot request book items from CSU+ and Interlibrary Loan at this time, due to the suspension of courier service.
Of course! Librarians are available to chat with you 24/7. If you need to make an appointment with a librarian for research help, please e-mail Library_Reference@csustan.edu for help via phone, email, or Zoom.
