Who can use the Library?

The Library is open to the community.

Our books and journals support the academic areas taught on campus. For some subjects, such as best sellers and hobbies, the public libraries may offer a more appropriate collection of books and magazines.

Can I check out books?

Yes, with purchase of a Community Borrower or Alumni Borrower card. Alumni can purchase a card at a discount rate with proof of current membership in the Sacramento State Alumni Association.

See User Services or call 916 278-6708 for full details on how to get a library card.


    Can I use the Library's computers?

    Anybody can use the Library's designated Research Stations on the 2nd floor to access the Internet, library catalog, and library databases.

    Only current CSUS students, faculty and staff with active Saclink accounts can use computers with word processing and other production software.


      Can I access the Library's databases from off campus?

      No. Borrowing Cards purchased by community members and alumni do not include off-campus access to Library databases and journals.

      However, anybody can search Eureka - the Library's online catalog for books, media, and other assorted documents primarily held in the Library.

      Also, community members and alumni can search OneSearch to identify books, articles and much, much more (full-text of articles is still restricted). 


        Do you have WiFi for guests?

        Yes, campus visitors have wireless access but at a reduced speed.

        To access the wireless network, open your internet browser, click the Guest option and enter your email address.


          Can I get a bound copy of my thesis for my own personal use?

          The Library does not provide this service. However, you can use a bindery service such as the HF Group's Thesis On Demand.  Be prepared to submit your own file or copy to be bound.
