General Circulation Information

CSU Libraries Circulation Policy

Reference materials, historical editions, microform, and journals generally do not circulate. Patrons maintaining current CSU alumni membership have CSU student borrowing privileges. Non-CSU patrons may use the collection on site (use of the equipment or media requires a current picture I.D.).

CSU patrons may check out circulating items located at Schwob Library in person on the main campus, or request that items be transferred to the Music Library. Transferring items between campuses typically takes a few business days.

CSU patrons may view the GALILEO password, examine their library account information, or renew items online by clicking on the YOUR ACCOUNT button in GIL, the CSU Libraries catalog. Patrons may also renew items in person or by telephone (706-641-5045) during normal operating hours.

All regular circulating items are limited to two renewals, unless requested by another library user. After two renewals, items must be returned to the library. Fines/fees must be paid in person (cash or check).
