Library Location & Hours

The physical library is located in Main Building Room 170. During the fall & spring semesters, our hours are:

7:30 am - 10:00 pm: Monday through Thursday
7:30 am - 4:30 pm: Friday
10:00 am - 2:00 pm: Saturday

For holidays and changes in hours, please see the full Library Calendar.

Our online library is open 24/7, making it possible for you to do your research from anywhere, anytime. When you are working from off-campus, you will need your Cincinnati State College ID number to access most resources. If you are not sure what your 7 digit number is, you can look it up at MyCState by clicking the link for forgotten username/password.

What We Can Do For You

We're happy to help you...

  • find the right databases to find the types of resources your professors want
  • pick the right search terms so you get results that are relevant
  • narrow down your search results so you don't get stuck sifting through hundreds
  • point you in the right direction for examples on how to format citations

So what CAN'T we do? Well, we aren't able to...

  • pick your resources for you (you're the one who will have to read them)
  • edit or write your papers (but the Writing Center might be able to offer some guidance)
  • write or correct your citations (but we'll direct you to citation tools & generators)
