Last Updated: 9/24/2020
The study rooms (LX 8, 9, and 26) and computer work station (LX 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.
If you need to use software from campus computers, you can get temporary access to some software tools for your own personal computer by visiting the Licensed Software Tools page on OIT’s website. Please be aware, some of this software is only temporarily accessible off-campus.
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 Library is not issuing Warrior Cards at the moment due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The University is implementing a system which will allow new students to submit their photo virtually and remotely. We anticipate the system to be in place during fall 2020. Please visit this page periodically for the latest update.
Returning students who are urgently in need of a replacement card, please contact Library Circulation Coordinator Kari Grimm at email@example.com for possible assistance.
Library materials (exceptions apply) in LX 25 are available for check out as of August 24, 2020. Fill out and submit to library circulation the Request Library Materials Form. You will be notified when your checkouts are ready for pick up. Pick up will be by appointment, and contact-free outside of LX 25.
Students enrolled at Stockton campus and in other distance learning/off-campus programs, please use the Stockton Library forms.
The Library offers a substantial collection of digital materials, including media, ebooks, full-text articles, and databases. Online materials can be accessed off-campus 24/7.
