Finding Books in OneSearch (Library Catalog)

OneSearch is now the CSULB library catalog. In addition to searching the CSULB collection, you can also search and request physical items from the CSU libraries.  Use OneSearch to find books, eBooks, CD's, DVD's, videos, journal titles and other material available in the CSULB and the other CSU Libraries.

The two major EBook collections for Engineering are Safari and Books 24 x7.  See eBooks for more information. The individual titles from these collections are included in OneSearch. Books 24x7 requires Univ ID and Password for access (on-campus and off-campus)

We also have access to many government publications via  OneSearch that are freely available on the Internet. Government publications are important for many engineering disciplines.

Please see box on right hand side to search OneSearch and the box below for guides and video tutorials.
