CSUS Library Virtual Tour
Welcome to the Virtual Tour of the Library at
California State University, Sacramento! The University Library is located
in the center of the CSUS campus. It is housed in a 270,000 square foot
building with two wings containing over one million volumes. Its
collections are designed to support the research needs of CSUS students,
faculty, staff and also those of the Sacramento area community. This
virtual visit will allow you to explore our facilities and services and
learn how to locate needed items efficiently when you visit in person.
Click here for library hours.
You may explore by going through the building
sequentially using the right arrow button at the bottom of each page or use
the elevator buttons in the column on the left to pick a floor number. The
button for the floor you are on is highlighted in green as shown on the left
where all the floors have the green highlight. If you have a particular area
for which you need information, use the links to the
Library Floor Maps
or the Library Directory located under the elevator buttons to go directly
to a specific floor, department or service point. Since the entire
Library has wireless
connectivity, you could even take this Virtual Tour at the same time you
are physically walking through the building with laptop in hand.
NORTH and SOUTH Wings and Elevator Buttons
Throughout this tour and on all library handouts we refer to
various areas of the Library by their floor number and the designation NORTH or SOUTH.
When you visit the Library you won't need a compass, but you will need to know which wing
you are in to locate the specific material or collection you are looking for. The Library
was constructed in two parts. The NORTH Wing was build in 1975 and contains six floors,
all served by the North Elevators. The SOUTH Wing was added in 1990 and has three floors
served by the South Elevator. These wings are connected by a central area know as the
Link. An escalator connects 1 NORTH and 2 NORTH. A central stairway and elevators in the
NORTH wing accesses all floors and a Link stairway connects 4 North, 3 South and 2 South.
The Library Main Entrance is located on 1 NORTH near
the Information Desk. We'll start the tour there. Click on 1 N button
or the right arrow to begin the Virtual Tour.
This Virtual Tour was created Spring, 1998 by Linda J. Goff during her sabbatical leave.
