Welcome from Dean Fabbi

Jennifer Fabbi PhotoDear Students—

Welcome to your Library Virtual Open House! We know that things could not be more different this semester from a regular fall semester, but we want you to know we are here to help you through. I know you will be getting details about what is available to you during this open house, but in general, there is someone available to you through our Library chat service 24 hours a day/7 days a week. We are working behind the scenes to get you electronic books, articles, and course materials as quickly as possible, and we are also using contactless book pick up lockers and a mail-to-home service to get you the library materials you need. Every one of you has a librarian assigned to your major, and I hope that by the end of this open house, you know how to reach that person. For those of you in your first semester at CSUSM, who haven’t been able to visit Kellogg Library in person yet, we are looking forward to the day when we are all back on campus so we can show you around! In the meantime, the amazing Library team will take good care of you in this virtual world.

Best of luck as the finals season is upon us!

Dean Jennifer Fabbi
