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 bbodemer@calpoly.edu.
