During this time of uncertainty, we want you to know that no matter where you are working, studying, or zooming – we are here for you. We are the Library.
Current CSUN students, faculty and staff can access our databases from off-campus. To access the databases from off-campus, click the name of the database. You will then see a screen asking you to log in, using your CSUN User ID and password (the same ID and password you use to log in to the portal). For more information, see Accessing Library Resources from Off-Campus and the Library's Copyright Statement (in particular, the Appropriate Use of Oviatt Library's Electronic Resources section).
The Oviatt Library is prepared to support you in the case that you may be teaching from a distance. IT has a number of resources for academic continuity in the event of disruptions to in-person teaching.

The Oviatt Library has access to digital materials available to you. Librarians have also created subject, course, and topic guides to help you navigate through the research process. Use OneSearch to find ebooks, journal articles, streaming audio or video, and other online resources. We have hundreds of databases that provide access to full-text articles, videos, and more!
Even if you are off-campus, you can use the FREE Interlibrary Loan service to obtain materials which are needed for research but are not available in the Oviatt Library. Interlibrary Loan borrowing of physical books is currently not available. You may still request articles that will be delivered electronically to your Interlibrary Loan account.
