Contactless Pickup & Delivery

To better serve the SSU community while the University Library building remains closed to the public, we will offer contactless book pickup and mail delivery. This new service will allow for safe access to the Library’s physical collections during the COVID-19 crisis. All CSU-affiliated students, faculty, and staff are eligible to request items for pickup or delivery.

Please note, our Contactless Pickup & Delivery Program is for books and media only. If you need access to the library’s print journals and newspapers, please contact your subject librarian or place an interlibrary loan request. For more information about borrowing a laptop, noise-cancelling headset, or wifi hotspot, visit Student Technology & Equipment.
