CSU Statement on Textbooks in the Library

The 23 California State University Libraries share the statement below as articulating the constraints we face in providing service to the students that is our mission.  While the Affordable Learning Solutions initiative promotes the adoption of low or no cost materials, students may still find themselves unable to pay for essential reading.  When instruction is on campus, libraries can provide short-term access to textbook and other resources through course reserves.

Request a Title from the Meriam Library

The Meriam Library is excited to announce that books and media titles can now be requested through OneSearch. For Summer 2020 the requested items are available from the Main Collection, Folio, Author Wall, Juvenile Collection, Popular, media, and a limited number of reference titles. We hope to expand to other locations in the fall.

Expanded Access to Online Research Resources during COVID-19

Publishers and vendors have generously opened their content packages to CSU for free and limited amounts of time so that CSU Chico faculty, staff, and students have access to additional electronic research and teaching content at this time. The Meriam Library has been working with the Chancellor’s Office to set up this new content, much of which is full-text.
