Only current CSUN students, faculty and staff can access our databases from off campus. Use any of these methods to sign-in off campus to access library resources:
- You can log in using the single sign on by starting in OneSearch, going to the upper right to login. Login using your CSUN User ID and password (the same ID and password you use to log in to the portal). See Accessing Library Resources from Off-Campus for more information.
- If you are searching directly in a database accessed from a subject guide or the database menu, click on the database you want to use. On the next screen you will be prompted to login using your CSUN User ID and password (the same ID and password you use to log in to the portal).
- An alternative is to download and use the campus Virtual Private Network to use your computer as if it were on campus. The VPN also supports uploading files to your campus udrive.
Once you access information, please refer to the Library's Copyright Statement (in particular, the Appropriate Use of the University Library's Electronic Resources section) for ethical and appropriate uses of the material.
