Purchase Suggestion

The CSU Libraries depends on relationships with students, researchers and scholars to build collections and make sure they have access to materials that meet their unique needs. Reach out to us and suggest a purchase for books, databases or other materials.

Book Check Out and Delivery

Books are a popular resource for research and scholarship. Faculty and staff can request book delivery to their on-campus office, and also authorize someone to check out materials on their behalf.

Borrowing Technology at Morgan Library

From chargers and cables to laptops and GoPros, we have a wide range of technology available to checkout to help you imagine and innovate through your research and scholarship.

Archival and Rare Materials Expertise

We offer digital and in-person access to CSU Libraries’ unique collections of primary sources, with strengths in agriculture, water resources, CSU history, as well as more than 20,000 items from antiquities to the 21st century.

Data Planning, Management and Sharing Expertise

Our data experts provide instruction and guidance to researchers across the University about management plans, archiving, sharing, and more. We offer specialized support for mapping and spatial data projects primarily through the Geospatial Centroid.

Library Grants and Funding

The CSU Libraries recognizes the financial barriers to research and scholarship success, and we strive to reduce or eliminate those barriers whenever possible. We have grants and funding available for open access publishing, open educational resources, and research using library collections.
