Use the Advanced Search feature to help you find specific items by title or author name, material type or publication date range.
To access the advanced search feature, click the OneSearch image on the Library's homepage and then the "Advanced" search link next to the Basic Search bar. A set of radio buttons gives you the option to search just the CSUN Collections, Course Reserves, or All CSU Libraries, which includes items you can order through CSU+ or InterLibrary Loan. You can search by Title, Author/contributor, Subject or ISBN, or all fields, and can combine multiple search statements. You can limit your search by Material Type (Books, Articles, Journals, Images, or Audio-visual), but language, and by date or date range.
Don't lose track of relevant articles or books. Use Pin It feature in OneSearch -- make sure to log in with your CSUN user id and password (same as portal or Canvas). Items you pin will remain attached to your account and appear every time you log in.
