Mission, policies, services, staff, and contact information

Patrons of the CSI Library (11/15/2011)

The CSI Library is funded by student fees and is primarily for the use of CSI students, faculty and staff. CSI students must present their CSI identification card with the current semester's sticker to check out materials from the library. All students taking at least one class for credit are entitled to an identification card. These cards and current stickers may be obtained at the Matrix in the Taylor Building. Students must complete a CSI Library application form before checking out items. Forms must be completed at least once each semester and at any time when the student's address or contact information changes.

CSI staff, faculty, and administration may use their employee identification card as their library card to checkout materials from the library.

Extension students (BSU, ISU, U of I, NNU) who are taking classes on our campus and are on the list of students provided by each university will be given a library card valid for that semester. They must provide official picture identification when applying for a library card. Extension students must complete a CSI Library application form before checking out items. The form must be completed at least once each semester and at any time their address or contact information changes.

Courtesy card holders may also request items through interlibrary loan.
