Use the Books and More Catalog (MnPALS Plus) to find books in the library. You may search by author, title, subject or keyword. Once you have identified and determined that the books you are interested in are available, you may come to the library locate them on the shelf and check them out or follow the steps below for home delivery.
For home delivery the library will pay for the cost of one-way delivery to your home. You will be responsible only for the cost of mailing the book back to the library before the due date, using the pre-addressed return label that accompanies the book. You will need to make your request through our Interlibrary Loan (ILL) page which is available on the library's homepage. Your request will take at least 2-10 days and possibly longer if you are requesting home delivery.
Journal Articles and E-Books
You have access to over 125 library databases, 20,000 full-text electronic journals, and 13,000 electronic books and reference sources through the SCSU library. All of these resources for locating or accessing articles, electronic books, and statistical data services can be used from any location on or off-campus.
When you are conducting research from off campus you will be prompted to login using your StarID and password. Once you enter this information you will be able to access the Library's online databases, journal articles, and eBooks.
