Borrowing Print Books and Physical Media by Mail

While the library building remains closed due to public health requirements, 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.

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.

Questions? Contact or call (818) 677-2274 

Interlibrary Loan will restart borrowing of print books and mail them to current CSUN students. 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.
