Community Patrons, Alumni & Guests

CSU Libraries is currently open only to CSU students, faculty and staff. If you are a community user, you can request CSU Libraries-owned books through your local public library. To request our books, use Prospector and your public library card information.

Retired CSU employees may enter CSU Libraries if they have a RamCard.

Alumni & Retiree Services

Alumni have the same privileges as community patrons. You’ll need a community patron card to use most of our services. Retired CSU employees can find more information about benefits on the Library Cards webpage.

Community Patron Services

You’re a community patron if…

You’re a Colorado resident 18 years or older or an alumni.  You’ll need a community patron card to use most of our services.

You can do these things when you’re at the Morgan Library:

Trying to use library resources off-campus?

Our community patron services are only available in person, except for loan renewals and requesting items we have at the library.

Need to request books or articles from other libraries?

Our request services like Interlibrary Loan and Prospector aren’t available to community patrons, but local libraries usually have similar services. We recommend that you ask the Poudre River Public Library District or your local library.

Guest Patron Services

You’re a guest if…

You’re not a Colorado resident or you’re just visiting for a day.

You can do these things when you’re at the Morgan Library:

  • Use a public computer for up to 2 hours one time
  • Connect your own device to our “CSU Guest” wi-fi network, which does not give you access to library resources like databases, full-text journals and e-Books
