UNIV 100: Freshman Seminar

This guide is for freshmen students currently taking University 100.

How to Find Books

Watch this video to learn how to use OneSearch to locate print and electronic books through the library. 

The Library has added locker pickup service to its books by mail service for CSUN students, faculty, and staff to borrow books and media, including loans from other libraries using Interlibrary Loan and CSU+. See the Locker Pickup Service for more information. Once again, stored circulating items located in the ASRS are now available for checkout, Interlibrary Loan is borrowing physical books/media.

Borrowing Print Books and Physical Media by Mail

While the library building remains closed due to public health requirements, beginning August 24, 2020, current CSUN students will be able to request books and other circulating materials from our collections to be sent to them by mail. Note that books and media on reserve are not available for mailing to students.

Users may request items through OneSearch:

  1. Search for needed items in OneSearch, and click Sign in to sign into your OneSearch account
  2. In the record for the item you want, click Request and follow the on-screen instructions.
  3. You will receive your requested materials by mail in about one to two weeks, as item availability, public health, and USPS mail circumstances allow.

Additionally, on August 24 Interlibrary Loan will restart borrowing of print books and mail them to current CSUN students, faculty (including Emeritus), and staff. You will receive your requested materials in one to three weeks, if borrowed from another CSU library (CSU+), or in about three to four weeks from non-CSU libraries, as item availability, public health, and postal services circumstances allow. Contact: interlibrary.loan@csun.edu or call (818) 677-2294.
