Alumni and Community

Due to current public health guidelines for higher education, the CSUN Library continues to be virtual only, and therefore public access to the Library is 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 Oviatt Library Digital Collections, 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.
