Overdue and replacement fees are now being applied to long overdue items.
The Library has begun accepting requests for print and other circulating materials from our collections. The library will fill requests as safety and staffing allows, while keeping a close watch on local and regional guidelines from the state. During this time the health and safety of our community and staff remain our most important concern.
Faculty may request digitization of Library-owned course-related media such as VHS and DVD for streaming. Digitized titles will only be available in Canvas for the current semester. Request Items for Digitization
Use Interlibrary Loan to request materials not available in the University Library Collection and CSU+. We can also provide document delivery of print journal articles/book chapters from the library collection. Learn more about Interlibrary Loan and other related services.
