The CR Library is one of the best resources you have for academic success. This guide outlines the many services available to students that can help you with your courses and your research. If you have a question, please stop and talk with our staff or click on the "More Help" tab for other ways to contact us.
During Fall 2020, in-person access to the CR library is available by arrangement only.
REFERENCE and RESEARCH HELP:
Librarians are available by phone, chat, or email between 12:00 - 8:00 Monday - Thursday and 10:00 - 1:00 Saturdays.
Call 707-476-4260, or use the "Chat with a Librarian" icon on most library webpages.
You can also submit research questions using our Ask-a-Librarian email service:
On any library page with a "chat" icon, if chat is not available the icon will automatically transfer you to a form to submit your questions. You should receive a response within 48 hours in most cases.
Do you have questions about checkouts, reserve materials, or your library account?
Call the Circulation Desk at 707-476-4260 to speak with library staff between 8:00 - 5:00 Monday-Thursday, or 8:00 - 4:00 Fridays, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
PICKING UP LIBRARY BOOKS AND EQUIPMENT
Physical books and other library materials may be available for checkout during Fall 2020 by arrangement during specified hours. Please contact the Circulation Desk to arrange for pickup, or to ask about options if you are not able to come to the Eureka campus.
RETURNING LIBRARY BOOKS AND EQUIPMENT
Library books and DVDs may be returned in the book drop to the right of the front doors at any time. Equipment checked out from the library must be returned in person; contact the Circulation Desk to make arrangements.
Many classes have assignments that require students to locate reliable sources of information. Students often assume this information will be easy to locate on the web, but that's not always true. If you're having trouble finding the materials you need, our librarians and library staff are ready to help you find what you need to complete your assignments, whether in the library or on the internet.
