The Current Periodicals and Master's Theses Have Moved

In order to improve convenience to our users, the Library has moved the Current Periodicals and Master's Theses. Previously located on the 3rd floor, the Current Periodicals have been relocated to the 4th floor and are shelved alphabetically by title with the Bound Periodicals. The Master's Theses have been moved to the west end of the 1st floor in the Library Commons.

Coming Soon: Be on the lookout for a new student study space on the 3rd floor where the periodicals and theses were located.

Check out the Library's Outstanding Book Collection

View of the Outstanding Book Collection in the Schwartz Library

In a large university library, browsing the shelves to locate a good book to read just for pleasure can be overwhelming. To help students identify well written, quality literature, CSU librarians created the Outstanding Book Collection. This unique collection was designed to foster a love of reading and encourage intellectual development among students. Conveniently located on the first floor of the Library near the entrance, this collection features both classic titles and contemporary award winners. The collection is small enough for casual browsing but offers an intriguing selection of fiction and nonfiction titles that will capture students' imaginations and take them to new worlds.
