Fall 2023 is here! Whether you are a first-time freshman, a returning student, graduate or undergraduate, the Library is here to support you!

If you are in need of technology this semester, stop by Library Technology Services: In collaboration with Campus IT, the Library is checking out laptops, tablets, hotspots, headsets, and webcams for semester-long loans to current CSUN students.

Need a textbook but want to save money? Many textbooks and course materials, including supplemental readings and specialized kits like anatomy bones and stacking cups, are available at no cost to you. Find them by course name, course number or instructor name on the Course Reserves Browse. Not seeing your textbooks on reserve? Contact your Subject Librarian or submit a Course Reserves Request and we’ll contact your professor.

Feeling creative? Visit the Creative Maker Studio and discover an exploratory space where students of any major can have access to hands-on multimedia design and production tools at no extra cost! Submit a 3D print, use our onsite recording room, check out a sewing machine or DSLR camera, and attend a workshop! Matadors, this is your space to create!

Need a place to collaborate? Reserve an Interactive Display Group Study Room, equipped with a 75-inch touch-screen display and slot-in computer that makes presentations, small group meetings, interviews, and conferencing so easy!

How about some peace and quiet? he Quiet Study Lounge is a tranquil place for students to engage in individual study without noise or distractions. We provide tables, study pods, and a small reading alcove for quiet study, course work, and reading.

Here’s to a great Fall semester, Matadors!
