Tip Of The Week

Welcome to the Library "Tip of the Week" page. The purpose of this service is to share helpful tips about the library, research, or just information in general.

Need a Book or Article that We Don't Have?

This week's tip, "Need a book or an article we don't have? WE WILL GET IT FOR YOU!" will expand the world of materials that are available to you!

When you find that the book you need is not on the shelf, is checked out, or is not own by this Library, don't worry.  We will get it for you! If you need an article that is not available full text from one of our databases or that we don't own, don't worry. We will get it for you!

The Library has two valuable services for getting items not available in this Library: Link+ (for books) and Document Delivery (for books and articles).  When trying to locate a book we do not have, always try Link+ first. It usually takes from 2-4 days and is much quicker than Document Delivery. If the book is not availalbe via Link+, then use Document Delivery. You will be notified by email when the book has arrived. Go to the Circulation Desk to check it out. Requested articles will be sent to you via email if full text is located.

Don’t want to wait? Click on Get Materials Not at this Library and you may be able to locate the book at a nearby CSU. You may go in person to check it out using your Bronco ID card and proof of enrollment for the current quarter (such as the receipt of enrollment - please contact the specific library before you visit for details).  Be sure to check that Library’s homepage for open hours and driving directions.
