About the Library

we are here for you, wherever you are

Welcome - we're so glad you're here!
Our building is open this semester Monday-Friday 8am to 6pm. And your librarians are available to help via phone, chat, text, or zoom, Monday-Friday, 8am-8pm and Saturday 10am-5pm.

Contactless Book Pick-up has resumed! Request local or OhioLINK books online through the Scholar catalog and pick them up whenever the Rhodes Tower lobby is open - even when the library is closed. We are prioritizing some of our most in-demand library services, extending due dates & renewals, and waiving fines to help you prepare for the semester ahead.


    • During Spring semester 2021, access to our building will be limited to current CSU students, faculty and staff.
    • Your Viking Card will be required for swipe access, and only the 1st and 2nd floors will be open.
    • Of course, health & safety /distancing protocols are in place campus-wide to prevent spread of the virus. Masks are required for all students, faculty and staff, as well as visitors, at all times on campus.
