While the Library remains closed, we invite members of the public to explore the Library's OneSearch system to find “open access” electronic resources, Oviatt Library Digital Collections, ScholarWorks Open Access Repository (SOAR) of scholarship created by the CSUN community, and electronic government documents. On-site public access to subscribed electronic books, articles, and media will return when the Oviatt Library fully reopens. Unfortunately, at this time, we are unable to offer book checkouts to our courtesy cardholders (Alumni Association, Friends of the Library, high schools, etc.). For public access to online resources, if you are a Los Angeles resident, we encourage you to also visit the Los Angeles Public Library website to access their extensive online collections of electronic books, articles, streaming media, and more; they also offer curbside pickup for their books. Similar services might be offered by your local library if you are not a Los Angeles resident. We appreciate your patience and understanding.
The Oviatt Library welcomes on and off-campus groups to schedule library tours to see our state-of-the art facility. Tours can be tailored to meet the needs of each tour group.Schedule a Tour
