25th annual CSU student research competition

The CSU Student Research Competition provides an opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students to present their outstanding research projects and creative works. Faculty are asked to encourage students to apply. The competition is open to current students, as well as those who graduated in the spring, summer or fall 2010.

The deadline for submissions is Monday, Feb. 21 for the SF State campus competition, which will take place Feb. 28 to March 4. Up to 10 winners will be chosen from the on-campus competition and those winners will compete in the CSU system-wide competition to be held May 6 – 7 at Fresno State.

SF State students have done well past competitions, including awards in three categories last year. Winners receive cash awards.

Student registration forms and application guidelines are available on the Graduate Studies website. SF State participants are also invited to exhibit their work in the Graduate Research and Creative Works Showcase on April 28.

For more information, contact Maria Conrad in the Division of Graduate Studies at

Mobile Site Database Search Enhancements

If you use the Library’s mobile site you know that you can search almost 100 databases using your mobile device. Up until now, all mobile database searches have been through a system developed by a technology wizard at the Cal State University Chancellor’s office.

Now we are also providing links to databases that have a mobile interface developed by the information providers. These provide a richer variety of search options and other features than our standard mobile database search.

View the list of the new mobile search databases here.

Use this link to see the list of databases that you can search using our standard mobile database search.

The Library Opens “Branch” in iLearn

iLearn Logo

iLearn now allows you to check out print books, eBooks and articles your instructor has put on an iLearn bookshelf. You can also chat with a librarian or library staff member to get tips about the best Library resources to use for an assignment. And you can access Library databases and research guides our librarians have identified as most useful for the general subject area covered by your class. Note, you will only see Library content in your iLearn classes if your instructor has turned this feature on. Check it out and let us know what you think.
