The CSU Library’s web page provides access to the Online Catalog and to other electronic resources, which include more than 100,000 e-books and thousands of online journal titles located in nearly 200 databases. Database access from on campus is by IP recognition – no usernames or passwords are required. From off-campus, you will be prompted for a username (your first initial and last name in one string) and a password (your CSU ID number).
If distance prevents a student from using library materials on campus, circulating materials from CSU’s print collection may be mailed to off-site students with a return address label. The student is responsible for return postage. Subject to copyright limitations, journal articles or a book chapter available in the CSU Library’s print collection may be scanned and sent to off-site students electronically.
