Fall 2020 Library Services

Fall 2020 Library Services

The MLML/MBARI Research Library has a number of services available for students to assist with fall 2020 classes and research. Click on the blue boxes below for more information about each specific topic.

Library staff are working and available most weekdays during business hours to help you locate and access journal articles, assist with course reserves, improve your database searching, and much more! Please email library staff (library@mlml.calstate.edu) or librarian Katie Lage (klage@mlml.calstate.edu) for assistance.

The physical library space remains closed for general access. Please contact library staff at library@mlml.calstate.edu for assistance with checking out a book or accessing other library resources.

If you would like to request a book from our collection for checkout, please email the title and author of the book to library@mlml.calstate.edu. Library staff will then locate the book and coordinate with you to determine the best way to get the book to you.

Our entire library collection can be searched in OneSearch, our online library catalog.

Due to health and safety concerns regarding accessing the shared space, the library printer is unfortunately closed for general access.

  • The official fall 2020 course reserves list can be found here
  • General information about course reserves can be found here
  • For some classes, additional course readings can be found on Canvas

The Library is currently accepting Interlibrary Loan (ILL) requests for articles and book chapters that can be delivered electronically, including for materials which we only have in print in our library. Unfortunately we are unable to accept ILL or CSU+ requests for physical books but will update everyone if that changes.

Instructions for submitting an ILL request via ILLiad can be found here.

The intent of advertising courtesy returns is to give students who live closer to a CSU other than their home campus the ability to return their materials.

How do I return my CSU library books?

You can return your books to any CSU campus library regardless of where you initially checked them out. The CSU libraries have a cooperative agreement ensuring that books will be sent to the appropriate location.

What if I cannot make it to any CSU campus to return my books?

Please contact the circulation department at your home campus if you are unable to bring your books to any CSU library.

What if I checked out a laptop or some other kind of technology?

Most CSU Libraries have also extended due dates on laptops and technology, but they will have to be returned directly to the owning campus. Please contact your home library if you have questions.

How do I find the closest CSU Library or contact my home library?

Maps and contact information for all 23 CSU Libraries are available here: https://www2.calstate.edu/csu-system/administration/sdls/Pages/csu-campus-libraries.aspx
