When you access library electronic resources from off-campus, you need to use one of the following methods. Using OneSearch will automatically prompt the campus Network login.
1. Campus VPN (Recommended)
Setting up VPN (Virtual Private Network) on your personal computer allows students, faculty, and staff to access library resources from off-campus.
- Download the VPN client
- Once VPN is installed on your computer, you turn it on by clicking the Connect button (shown below).
2. Library Login (Default)
When you are off-campus and click on library electronic resources, you will be prompted to login using the EZproxy Login screen (shown below). Login using your MyCalStateLA ID username and password.
- Place your MyCalStateLA ID account username (e.g. lsmith8) in the username box. Do not include @calstatela.edu as part of your username.
- If you don't know your MyCalStateLA password, please go to the myCalStateLA page and click on "Forgot Password."
- If you experience difficulty in recovering your ID username and password, please contact the ITS Help Desk at firstname.lastname@example.org or 323-343-6170.
