Currently, the Library building is closed, with most services being provided virtually. This includes:

  • General Research Assistance 24/7 and consultation appointments
  • Information literacy instruction
  • Electronic research guides, tutorials, FAQs, databases, digital collection guides and finding aids
  • Interlibrary loans for e-resource
  • Library faculty liaison outreach
  • Social media outreach to students
  • Archival and special collections research assistance
  • Access to digital databases, collections, and e-materials

Accessing Materials

In addition to the remote services outlined above, the Library now has 24/7 locker service for physical materials, including:

  • Books from CSUDH circulating collections
  • CSU+ and Interlibrary Loan physical materials
  • Selected course material reserves

For detailed information about how to use the locker system, visit the Library Lockers website.

Library User Services employees will work in the building, using limited and staggered schedules for optimal safety, on fulfilling users' requests for items from our circulating collections, fulfilling physical interlibrary loan requests, and course reserves.

Gerth Archives

Limited exceptions are made for staff from the Gerth Archives to work occasionally in the building for a short period of time. The focus of the Gerth Archives has been and continues to be on projects and cataloging that can be done remotely, with occasional visits to the Library in order to prepare work that can be done away from the physical building and to support research requests that can be fulfilled remotely.
