The library doesn't have my book

If the library doesn't have a book you want, or if it's checked out or states "Library Use Only," you can often get a copy through CSU+

CSU+ is:

  • free for Fresno State students, faculty, and staff.
  • quick. Items arrive in 2-4 business days
  • convenient.  You request your items online, and we notify you by email when they are ready for pickup.
  • extensive.  Books from all 23 CSU libraries are available in CSU+

To search CSU+, start at the Library Homepage, enter your search terms, and click the link for CSU+ Books and Media

Within your results, items from other libraries will display "Unavailable at Fresno State. See Request Options" as the item status. Click that link.

In order to request an item through CSU+, it needs to be available at another library.  Click the "See availability at other CSU Libraries" to check availbility. If the item is available, you can use the link to request from CSU+.   You must be signed in for the link to appear.

If your your book is unavailable through CSU+, you can try requesting it through interlibrary loan.
