COVID-19: Limited Access to Tangible Kennedy Collections and CSU+ through "Contactless Pick-up"
95% of Kennedy Library collections are online resources, so for these you are in luck no matter where you are located! Currently, physical materials from Kennedy Library (excluding print Course Reserves) can be requested and checked out through contactless pickup. Some items can also be requested and checked out using CSU+. Such access to physical items will not be as rapid as under normal circumstances, so this is not a good option if you are in a hurry. For items held outside the CSU system, ILL can provide articles, select book chapters, and other materials electronically, but no physical items can be requested at this time. For details regarding "contactless pick-up" see the Kennedy COVID-19 Guide at:https://guides.lib.calpoly.edu/COVID-19
This guide gives you great pointers on the best databases and resources for your field. Don't forget that you can find help on 24/7 live chat at any time of day or night. You can also email the CLA librarian, Brett Bodemer, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
JSTOR is a full-text database of back issues for scholarly journals as well as eBooks, primarily in the social sciences and humanities. eBook content reflects current scholarship in most cases while journal content starts with volume one, but because JSTOR is an archival database, the most recent 3-5 years of journal issues are not available in JSTOR.
