SJSU King Library Resource Guide for Economics Students, Faculty, and Practitioners.

CSU+ and Interlibrary Loan

CSU+ is a resource-sharing system that allows students, faculty, and staff to request books from any of the 23 California State University libraries and have them delivered to their home campus within 2-5 days. If CSU+ doesn't have what you're looking for, you can request it through SJSU's Interlibrary Loan service (ILLiad). Only SJSU patrons are eligible to use CSU+. 

Loan periods are as follows:

  • CSU+ books: 60 days, no renewals

  • CSU+ media: 30 days, no renewals

Interlibrary Loan lets library users borrow hard-copy items (books, microfilm, etc.) and articles (paper, electronic) from libraries all over the world. Generally, there is no charge for this service. Interlibrary Services does not fill requests for:

  • Textbooks
  • Items on Course Reserves for SJSU students at the King Library
