If you have searched OneSearch for something specific and aren’t seeing it listed as being available in our library, follow these steps to request to have your item shipped to our library and made available for you to pick up through one of our loan services: CSU+ or Interlibrary Loan.
A request may be canceled because the item is unavailable in CSU+. If this happens, check your cancellation email for an option to request the item through Interlibrary Loan. You can simply click the link in that email to process that request. If you haven’t used the ILL service before, you may be asked to create a new account before you can request items.
When you’re ready to return your physical items, simply drop them off at the front desk of library north or in a drop box outside.
After submitting a search, use the filters on the left side under "Available at Cal State LA" to narrow your search to Full-Text Online, and Books under Resource Type (you may have to click show more to see books).
Under "Full text available at," click the link to access the book. Check the user options- some books have unlimited access, but others can only be used by one person at a time and may require you to check back after the other reader has left the book.
