This guide explains how you can access library services and resources, updated for the 2022-23 academic year. It includes information about hours & services available for students, faculty, and guests at the Elihu Burritt Library.
Librarians & library staff are available to help you with your research & learning needs, whether we are working together in-person or online. We want to see you succeed! With that in mind, here's a listing of some of the things that you need to know.
What's changed for 2022-23
There are no mask requirements or restrictions on food & drink. There are hand sanitizing stations throughout the library and restrooms on each floor.
There is a new campus-wide printing system that covers printers in the library. The system requires you to have a credit balance on your BlueChip Card. For more, see our guide to printing.
You can seek help from a reference librarian (2nd floor) or locate & request books/media through the CentralSearch catalog. The catalog lets you know if an item is on the shelf and if so, gives you a stack location and call number. You can pick up & check out requests and course reserves in person at the Circulation desk.
Library stacks are open for browsing & study space. Library users can eat & drink anywhere in the library. A designated eating area is also available on the second floor. Please be respectful of the quiet areas in the library (e.g., 4th floor).
Will computers be available for use?
There are 2 public terminals (Chromebooks) on the 1st floor and one on Stack 6 for all library visitors. For CCSU students and faculty, there are computers on the 2nd and 4th floors. There are disinfecting wipes available on both floors. Patrons are responsible for wiping the keyboard and mouse down, before and after each use.
What about Printing?
See our guide to printing at the library. CCSU switched to a print management system known as Papercut for the 2022-23 year, which requires a credit balance to be available on your Bluechip card.
To add value to your card, go to https://get.cbord.com/ccsu
Login to Papercut using your CCSU Microsoft/Bluenet credentials by selecting "Sign in with Microsoft" on the log in screen.
