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, faculty (including Emeritus), and staff 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.

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.

Using OneSearch

Our catalog and article search has been combined into a new OneSearch platform. Here you can search for books and e-books, videos, articles, digital media, and more.

You can narrow your search results under the Refine My Results and Resource Type headings by choosing a resource type such as Books or eBooks.


CSU Resource Sharing

Is the book you want already checked out? Or perhaps the library does now already own a copy? Watch this video to learn how to use OneSearch to request an item available through another CSU library.

CSU+ during the COVID-19 closures

CSU+ is still operating during the pandemic, but more slowly than usual.  Articles held digitally by another CSU will be emailed to you as normal.  The CSUN library can also scan articles from our own print journals and email them to you while the print collection is unavailable.

Interlibrary Loan has restarted borrowing print books and mailing 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 or call (818) 677-2294.
