Library Reopening! On Monday, August 24, the 24/7 Study Area will reopen for use by current SDSU students, faculty, and staff, with access to computers and self-serve printing. Please be prepared to show your SDSUid and wear a facial covering. This space will be open daily from 9 am to noon and 1 pm to 5 pm.

We continue to offer SDSU students, faculty, and staff on demand, contactless delivery of books and DVDs to support their curricular and research needs, through a "Domeside Pickup" service. We are pulling books on Mondays, with pickup times on Monday/Wednesday/Friday 9-11. At this time, we are still unable to scan materials, and access to the physical collections is for approved library staff only. 

The SDSU Library remains accessible virtually to SDSU students, faculty, staff, and the community. Electronic materials, including ebooks, journal articles, government documents, and streaming media, are available via OneSearch, the SDSU Government Publications Guide, and nearly 500 article databases. Our subject experts can be contacted via our 24/7 Librarian online chat. Researchers needing specialized help with government information may contact a Regional FDLP library.

Please stay tuned for the latest information, and thank you for your patience during this process.

Library Collections

  • Access to all of our physical collections is suspended. Sorry, we cannot scan materials.
  • Special Collections and University Archives can be reached at askscua@sdsu.edu. They do not have access to the collections, and so cannot scan materials. Check out their Primary Sources Online guide.
  • Our Digital Collections contain SDSU theses, syllabi, course catalogs, student newspapers, yearbooks, and thousands of SDSU photos.
  • As of 8/6/20, we have 8 trial databases that allow us free access to resources in areas such as science, history, news, and Covid-19 research. Take a look!
  • No gift donations of physical materials will be accepted. It is expected that this suspension will last until January 2021.
