Remote Access from Off-Campus

When you access library electronic resources from off-campus, you need to use one of the following methods.

1.  Campus VPN  (Recommended)

Setting up VPN (Virtual Private Network) on your personal computer allows students, faculty, and staff to access university network resources (including library databases) from any off-campus computer connected to the internet. To access library electronic resources via VPN, follow these easy steps:  

  • Download the VPN client 
  • Once VPN is installed on your computer, you turn it on by clicking the Connect button (shown below) when you need to access library or campus electronic resources. 


  • Once you have connected, you can freely access any library electronic resources via OneSearch, Databases, Journals, etc. from the library homepage.

2.  EZProxy Login  (Default)

When you are off-campus and click on library electronic resources, you will be prompted to login using the EZProxy screen (shown below).  You login using your MyCalStateLA Identity user name and password.
 Login Box Example

Please note:

  • Only place your MyCSULA Identity account user name, e.g. lsmith8 in the user name box
  • Do not place the domain name "ad\" in front of your user name
  • Do not include as part of your user name

If you don't remember your myCalStateLA Identity account user name and password, please go to the myCalStateLA page and click on "Forgot Password" start your ID and Password recovery process.

If you experience difficulty in recovering your ID and Password, please contact the ITS Help Desk at or 323-343-6170.
