Can't find it?

Can't find it at our library? Use our Inter-Library Loan service to borrow materials from other libraries. Before requesting books or articles from another library, you should search the Library Catalog (books), or the Journal List (articles) to see if we have the item you need. If you still can't find what you're looking for, then request the item through interlibrary loan.

Accessing Databases from Home

When you access library electronic resources from off-campus, you need to use one of the following methods. Using OneSearch will automatically prompt the EZproxy 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.  EZProxy Login  (Default)

  • Place your MyCalStateLA ID account username (e.g. lsmith8) in the username box. Do not include @calstatela.edu as part of your username.
