Finding Books Using OneSearch

You can search for books using OneSearch by typing in the title, author or keywords in the homepage OneSearch form.  Once the results page loads, you can use the limiters in the menus under "Refine My Results" to narrow your results. Selecting "books" under "Resource Type" will limit the results to eBooks and print books.  For eBooks only, select "Available Online at CSUN" under "Show Only"; for print books only, select "Available at CSUN" under "Show Only."  

Click the title heading of any given result item to view the full record.  In the full record, under "Online Access" you'll find the direct link to electronic text, if available. Ebooks can have different number of user access. Check in the notes section to see how many users can read the book at any given time.  The "Send To" menu offers tools for citing, emailing, or saving a record as a favorite.

Your library team!

The University Library has a number of people ready to help you. I (Lindsay) am your MBA librarian. Because you will be taking classes in each of Nazarian's departments, you may want to get research assistance from both subject specialists. In addition, feel free to reach out to liaison librarians in other departments such as Psychology, Engineering, Computer Science, etc. This is a great time to be creative in your research!

I can help you with Accounting, Economics, Finance, Management, Marketing, and Systems & Operations Management. Andrew Weiss can assist with Business Law.

You can also Ask a Librarian whenever you need help.
