Due to the rise in COVID-19 cases in Southern Nevada, all CSN Libraries on-campus services, except for our outdoor book drops, are closed. All our online services are available. To get assistance, please see Ask a Librarian.

If you have any comments, questions, or concerns please contact Emily King, Interim Director of CSN Libraries, at emily.king@csn.edu or 702-651-7511.

Reference & Research Assistance

Students and faculty needing help with sources, citations, using our online library, and other questions can contact us through email, text, phone, and chat, with expanded chat hours. To get assistance, please see Ask a Librarian.

Library Instruction

All library instruction is now online. Each librarian will work with instructors and present options to best help students meet the learning outcome(s). If you would like to schedule instruction, please complete the instruction request form.

Please contact Becky Blunk at rebecca.blunk@csn.edu for more information.


Our outdoor book drops are now opened for returns of books and other non-electronic items. If you need to return a calculator, a laptop, or other electronic items, please contact Dana Phillips at dana.phillips@csn.edu for options on returning those items. Due to quarantine procedures, books might take a few days to clear your account.

ILL (Loaned Items)

If you have InterLibrary Loan item(s) checked out, they may be returned to CSN Libraries book drops, and due date extension renewals may be requested in your Tipasa account as needed. Physical material request services have been temporarily suspended due to campus closure and will resume once staff has returned to campus. If you have questions, please contact Jessica Caseman at jessica.caseman@csn.edu.

Library Spaces

For the health and safety of the campus community, the campus libraries are currently closed. We are still offering resources and services to students, staff, and faculty. If you have a question not addressed on this page, please contact us via Ask a Librarian.
