Retiree Information

CSB/SJU retired employees retain their in-person library privileges. CSB/SJU retired faculty also retain remote access to library services with their CSB/SJU retiree email account.

If you have a campus ID, you can use it to checkout materials from the library. If you don’t have an ID, we ask that you obtain a retiree ID from Security or Life Safety.


Placing a Hold:
If something is currently checked out or the book is available, but you do not have time to grab it or you would like it transferred to the other campus you can place a “Hold”.

Unfortunately, the “Place Hold” button will not work but use the following form.
Intercampus Delivery – CSB+SJU


Placing an Interlibrary Loan Request:
Unfortunately, the “Request item through Interlibrary Loan” or “Find It” buttons will not work but use the following form.
Interlibrary Loan Request (csbsju.edu)

You will receive an email as soon as your item becomes available.

  • Requested books are held for seven days after which they will be returned to the lending library.
  • Requested articles will be delivered electronically, in which case your email will include a URL and PIN which you will use to read, print, or download your article.

Accessing your Account
Unfortunately, you will no longer have access to your WMS account. If you are unsure about what is checked out to you, please give us a call at 320-363-5604 (CSB) or 320-363-2120 (SJU) or drop us an email at circoffice@csbsju.edu to request a list of items currently checked out to you. If your email address has been updated in your library account, you will continue to receive notices about items available for pick up and upcoming due dates.

 
Renewing a book:
Please stop by either Library, give us a call or drop us an email circoffice@csbsju.edu to have your materials renewed.

The Circulation Offices can be reached at 320-363-5604 (CSB) or 320-363-2120 (SJU).

 
Overdue Policies:
After an item is overdue for five weeks, a processing fee of $10 and a replacement cost will be charged. The replacement cost will be refunded if the item is returned within three months of the billing date.
