Welcome, CSU Students!

On behalf of the CSU Library, welcome to Columbia Southern University!

Here at the CSU Library, our goal is to provide you with resources and assistance to help you successfully discover exactly what you are looking for as you research.

We have thousands of resources chosen especially to support your course assignments, including journals, magazines, newspapers, e-books, and videos, all housed in over 70 databases. Along with these resources, we also provide librarian-designed tutorials and guides created to help you become information literate.

Information literacy is the ability to find and evaluate information to help you make sound decisions in life, whether for academic, professional, or personal purposes. Please see this tutorial for more information about information literacy and how it relates to your academic assignments.

This guide will introduce you to the CSU Library and its resources. Use the "Back" and "Next" buttons on each page to advance through the guide, or select a topic to learn more about using the tabs on the left.
