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 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.
