Book Paging

Book Paging & Reciprocal Borrowing

Due to the closure of the Pollak Library South, the Library has instituted a book paging service. There is a 24 hour turnaround period for requests made Monday-Friday by 3 p.m. Any requests made after 3p.m. on Friday will be paged on Monday.

Demonstration of how to use our book paging service (or version without voiceover).

CSUF Community

Students, faculty and staff are welcome to request books to be paged by submitting an online request through ILLiad. Click here to fill out an ILLiad request form. If you do not already have an ILLiad account, you will be prompted to create one.

Paged books are available for pickup at the Circulation Desk located on the first floor of Pollak Library North. Paged books are on the holdshelf for 10 days before being reshelved.

If paged material is not found in our stacks, your request will automatically be ordered through Interlibrary Loan and requested from another institution. No further action is required after the initial book paging request.

Borrowing From Other Libraries

All students, faculty and staff are welcome to travel to and check out material from any CSU library . We also have reciprocal borrowing agreements with local colleges. Click here for a list of the institutions that have reciprocal agreements with the Pollak Library. To obtain an authorization letter to borrow from these reciprocal institutions, please visit the Circulation Desk located on the 1st floor North.
