While the Library remains closed to all but CSUN students for limited access, we invite you to explore the Library's OneSearch system to find “open access” electronic resources, University Library Digital Collections, ScholarWorks Open Access Repository (SOAR) of scholarship created by the CSUN community, and electronic government documents. See information below for services that will be available once the Library is fully open. While we are unable to offer book checkouts to many of our courtesy cardholders, beginning July 1, 2021, the Library is pleased to provide book checkouts by Locker Pickup Service to current members of the Friends of the Library and Legacy/Lifetime Alumni Association members.
For public access to online books and other resources, if you are a Los Angeles resident, we encourage you to also visit the Los Angeles Public Library to access their extensive collections of electronic books, articles, streaming media, and more. In addition, many branches of LAPL libraries have reopened with limited services, including book checkouts. Similar services might be offered by your local library if you are not a Los Angeles resident. We appreciate your patience and understanding.
