CSUN University Library Advanced Placement Student Program

Due to current public health guidelines for higher education, the CSUN Library continues to be virtual only, and therefore public access to the Library and the AP Student program are suspended. Furthermore, we also cannot extend contactless book circulation services to community members or courtesy cardholders due to our need to prioritize our limited resources to current CSUN students and employees.

In the meantime, we invite you to explore historic photographs, scholarly journals, musical scores, all issues of the CSUN Sundial student newspaper, and important government information using , open access scientific journals and masters theses, and electronic government documents, all freely available to the public. For public access to other online resources and curbside book checkouts, we encourage you to visit Los Angeles Public Library or your local library.

The University Library is pleased to offer some of our services to eligible high school students in Advanced Placement classes at Los Angeles Unified School District high schools in the San Fernando Valley and other select area high schools in the San Fernando Valley.
