      Need a password? It's probably on your syllabus, but don't hesitate to ask a librarian or your instructor.

    THE TEXTBOOK CENTER, located on the first floor of the Library at the User Services desk, offers a limited selection of print textbooks required for some of the larger general education classes for the semester. Any CSU student with a valid Viking Card may borrow these textbooks to use for a 2-hour loan.

    There is a $1.00 per hour overdue fee for any materials returned late.

    PRINT & ELECTRONIC COURSE RESERVES, at the Textbook Center or Online
    Your professor may be using the Library's print or e-books and articles as required materials. Your prof may even have loaned us his or her own copy of your required texts! Check your syllabus or stop at the user services desk to find out. Or look them up yourself right here.
