CSU Library Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

SPECIALIZED RESOURCES QUESTIONS

To access NFPA codes, you will need to get them directly from the NFPA website.  If it's your first visit to that website, you will need to create a free account; after that, you will need to sign in to view content.  To find information on specific codes, select "Codes & Standards" on the main page, then look for a hyperlinked list.  For step-by-step instructions, click HERE.
On the library homepage, click the button labeled Specialized E-Journals.  The Journal of Emergency Management is at the top of the list.  Click the title to be redirected to the journal page, and select "Click Here to Open Portal" to browse through the current issue.
See the question above for instructions on accessing the journal.  Once inside the portal, you have two options.  Option 1: click on "Back Issues" near the top to bring up a list of back issues on the right and use the arrows at the bottom to locate the specific issue you need.  Use this first option if you need to locate a specific volume/issue number.  Option 2: click the arrow next to "Search in this issue" and select "Search Archives"; type your search term in the search box and hit enter.
A code is no longer necessary for access. Please see the question above for instructions on accessing the journal. If you have trouble with access, please contact a CSU librarian via email, phone, or chat.
