The CSI Library offers a variety of information resources and services to CSI students (including distance learning students taking classes online or at the off-campus centers), faculty, staff, as well University students who take courses on our campus, and community members with CSI Library courtesy cards.

A current CSI student identification card, CSI employee identification card or courtesy card is required to check out materials from the library.

The library is located on the first floor of the Meyerhoeffer Building and has study carrels, comfortable seating, and small group study rooms. It also houses the main open computer lab on campus.

The library collections include: books, e-books, reference works, journals and magazines (both printed and electronic formats), newspapers, DVDs, music CDs, and maps. The library also offers access to a variety of online information resources and services, including e-books, and downloadable audiobooks. The Special Collections room houses mostly materials related to CSI, Magic Valley, and Idaho history.

The library’s online catalog is accessible from any computer with an Internet connection and can be used to quickly identify materials that the library owns. The library also offers interlibrary loan services (where books and other materials are borrowed from other libraries).

Reference and research assistance is provided, as well as information literacy instruction. Library instruction is available to classes and student groups and is tailored to the students’ specific needs.
