Guidelines for Library Use by High School Students

These guidelines apply to use of the CSULA University Library by local high school students. They do not apply to Los Angeles High School for the Arts Students.

Access to the Library
High school students may visit the Library at California State University, Los Angeles (CSULA) at any time individually or in small groups. However, large groups should make arrangements with the Library prior to their visit. High school students are encouraged to use library resources at their local high school or public library before choosing to come to the Library at CSULA. There are four public workstations at the Library which allow access to the World Wide Web; and other workstations require a CSULA password.

Library Cards and Borrowing Privileges
Students who wish to borrow books from the Library must first apply for a library card and may obtain a form at the Circulation Desk. The form must be signed by the student's parent/guardian and teacher. Students may borrow five books at a time and the loan period is four weeks. Magazines, journals, newspapers and reference materials may not be borrowed.

Class or Group Visits
Classes or groups should make reservations ahead of time because public access to Library workstations and Electronic Classrooms is limited. In general, these visits are limited to the latter weeks of each CSULA quarter when the Library's Electronic Classrooms may be used by outside groups or classes. Please contact Christina Sheldon at (323) 343-4824 or email her at csheldo@calstatela.edu at least two weeks in advance to arrange for instruction in the use of Library resources.
