Random acts of kindness

The last semester of school year is hard!

It is stressful, and at times overwhelming.  We at Meriam Library are here to support you.  We provide space for research, tutoring, studying, collaboration, and relaxation.

Sometimes it is the little things that can make a difference. So in addition to our De-Stress program, we have hidden cards of encouragement throughout the building. Whether you find a letter or not, we hope you finish strong! sample letters blog

New Search Interface and Catalog Coming to Meriam Library July 2017!

Big changes are coming to the search interface and catalog at the Meriam Library in July 2017. For the past several years, the CSU has worked to combine the 23 campus libraries’ physical and shared electronic holdings into one catalog and search interface, called OneSearch. This system is in the final stages of completion and will be going live at Chico State in July. The new vendor, ExLibris, is a library leader in innovative searching interfaces and library management systems.

OneSearch will streamline the research process by allowing users to search digital and physical holdings at Chico State as well as physical collections from other CSU libraries.

Informational training sessions will be held in August. If you would like an overview regarding these changes prior to August, please contact Jodi Shepherd. For more detailed information on this exciting transition, visit our online guide.
