Welcome Tipasa!

We are pleased to announce that on Monday, January 8th, CSU Libraries is moving from the ILLiad InterLibrary Loan platform to the Tipasa system.

Tipasa is a cloud-based InterLibrary Loan platform that can be used on any device, including your smartphones. Tipasa also allows you to receive your Interlibrary Loan notifications by text message and/or e-mail. Therefore, you can retrieve your electronic InterLibrary Loan resources on the go, wherever you may be.

You'll also like the new Tipasa user interface.  It's been customized for efficiency and ease-of-use. Likewise, you do not need separate login credentials to use Tipasa. You just need to log into MyCSU to access it.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about Tipasa.  We can be reached by e-mail at ill@columbusstate.edu or by phone at 706-507-8691.

Special to the CSU Libraries Blog: CSU Libraries Loan Pucks to Students


Well ... sort of.  At the recommendation of the Dean of Libraries, Mark Flynn, the Columbus State University Libraries began offering the puck-shaped items in Feburary 2016. Created and distributed by Puck Charger Systems, an Australian company, Discgo is "a robust mobile phone charger that allows users the freedom to move around the venue or event while recharging. With Discgo, you don’t need to be plugged into a wall."  Students may borrow a Discgo along with a charging cord for two hours while visiting the library.  Each unit has two micro USB ports.  A Discgo can be used to charge phones as well as tablets.  A Discgo charging station holds 5 units.  It takes approximately 2 hours to re-charge the units.



According to the Discgocharger.com website, Columbus State University is the only U.S. college or university to offer the Discgo chargers presently.  According to U.S. News & World Report, Columbus State University is among the top 50 best public regional universities in the South.  With its continued commitment to meet the academic and technological needs of its students, it’s not surprising that CSU would lead the way in offering the Discgo.
