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.
You can request physical books be sent to the library from other Cal State campuses and libraries around the country. This service also includes digital access to single book chapters and electronic articles from institutions sent to you as PDFs. CSU+ is a free service and students and faculty may request as many items as you like!
The library keeps a copy of all the masters theses that have been written by CSULA students. Print copies prior to 2012 are available in Archives and Special Collections, and digital theses beginning Fall Quarter 2011 are available in ScholarWorks.
