Library Tours

CSUN student or community member?  Please visit our new Library Tours page to find out about tour services available.

Non-CSUN students, including high schools, middle schools, and elementary schools

Please review the Oviatt Library tour policy below before contacting Research, Instruction and OutreachServices (677-2277) or Coleen Martin (677-6396 / to arrange a tour.

School Participation Policy

K-12 and other non-CSUN teachers or instructors who request and participate in Library tours are expected to:

  • Provide the Oviatt Library with intended goals for their Library tour;
  • Complete an online survey about their student’s experiences at the Library and the ways in which the visit fulfilled the intended goals. Survey results will be used to improve future programming and for promotional purposes to communicate the Oviatt Library’s outreach activities to the campus community and the public.

Tours for non-CSUN students last approximately 45 minutes. In order to ensure the best possible experience, tour groups may not exceed 20 students. Please schedule a tour for groups of 20 or less at least two weeks in advance. If your group will be larger than 20 students, please contact the library at least four weeks in advance to make appropriate arrangements. For groups in the eighth grade or younger, one adult chaperone must accompany every 10 students. All other groups must have at least one adult chaperone per 20 students.
