COVID-19 Safety Measures

CSN Libraries is open (see our current hours) and we are excited to see everyone in the libraries.

As you start enjoying the libraries again, please:

  • Wear a mask if you are visiting the libraries in person. Masks are required for all visitors on all CSN campuses.
  • Practice good hygiene and wash or sanitize your hands often. We will have hand sanitizing stations throughout the library.
  • Do not come to the library if you feel sick, have a fever, or have been exposed to someone with COVID-19.

Reference & Research Assistance

Librarians are available to provide help with completing assignments and research. If you do not see a librarian at the reference desk, please ask library staff at the Circulation Desk and let them know you need assistance.

If you would prefer to meet with a librarian online, we still have our Ask A Librarian service with options for chat (including integrated video conferencing), texting, and emailing. You can also schedule one-on-one meetings with a librarian online.

Library Instruction

Library instruction is available online and in person. Please submit an online instruction request to schedule a library session for your class.

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

InterLibrary Loan (ILL)

CSN Interlibrary Loan has resumed accepting requests for physical items. Please keep in mind:

  • There may be delays in the fulfillment of ILL requests for physical items due to limited availability of lending institutions.
  • Articles and scanned chapter requests continue to be readily available without significant delays.
  • Use our new online system for ILL questions or to place online requests.
