Librarians love sharing, so we’re very pleased to announce a new way to share materials among the 23 campuses of the CSU system. For the first time in the history of the California State University system, all campus libraries have been linked this summer. OneSearch is an integrated library catalog that contains records for over 29 million books in the CSU system, including those at Cal Maritime. While each library will still maintain its own collection, the physical resources in all the CSU libraries will be easily available to every student, faculty and staff. OneSearch features an updated, mobile friendly interface that makes it easy to find, cite, save, and share books, ebooks, ejournals, articles and streaming videos.
The new CSU+ service allows you to request books and media from any of the 23 CSU libraries and have them delivered (for free!) to Cal Maritime. Thanks to a speedy courier service, our students, faculty, and staff will be able to receive requested materials in 2-4 days. Starting Monday, July 10, CSU+ is replacing our former requesting service, Link+. While Link+ only included ten other CSU libraries, all 23 will be participating in CSU+. The new CSU+ service has several benefits, including simpler searching, no overdue fines, and longer loan periods. You can borrow books through CSU+ for 60 days, and media through CSU+ (DVDs, CDs, etc) for 30 days.
CSU+ is available through OneSearch. If you find an item in OneSearch that isn’t available at Cal Maritime, just login and request delivery to our campus.
