Library privileges are determined by users' affiliation with CSU Fullerton, specifically their current status in the CSUF Portal .
Students, Faculty, and Staff
CSUF students, faculty, and staff enjoy broad circulation privileges, including interlibrary loan (ILL) and reciprocal borrowing. They also have access (both on and off campus) to the Library's wide array of electronic resources.
Patrons of the Library
Members of the Patrons of the Library receive modest circulation privileges, but ILL services are available only at the Enhanced Membership level and above. Patrons do not have remote access to electronic resources but may use these resources in person as daily guest users.
Special borrowers have limited circulation privileges, without ILL services. They also don't have remote access to electronic resources but may use these in person as daily guest users.
Individuals from the following groups are eligible to become special borrowers: CSU alumni associations, Art Alliance, Friends of the Arboretum, qualifying Orange County teachers, Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI), President's Associates, Reading Educators' Guild, and students, faculty, and staff from other CSU campuses and reciprocal institutions.
The Pollak Library is open to the public. Though members of the public have only minimal circulation privileges, they are welcome to access the Library’s resources as daily guest users.
