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: email@example.com or call (818) 677-2294.
The Oviatt Library is prepared to support you in the case that you may be learning from a distance. IT has a number of resources for academic continuity in the event of disruptions to in-person learning.
