Free Electronic Resources for CSUN Students & Faculty

Many publishers are making resources freely available during the COVID-19 crisis.

Using OneSearch

Our catalog and article search has been combined into a new OneSearch platform. Here you can search for books and e-books, videos, articles, digital media, and more.

You can narrow your search results under the Refine My Results and Resource Type headings by choosing a resource type such as Books or eBooks.


CSU Resource Sharing

Is the book you want already checked out? Or perhaps the library does now already own a copy? Watch this video to learn how to use OneSearch to request an item available through another CSU library.
