When using Google Scholar rom off-campus, either use the University's VPN or go to Scholar Preferences, library links, and search for and select CSULB. Now in your search results you will have Get It at CSULB links to access CSULB subscriptions for full-text articles. See this how-to video for more info.
One of the following buttons appears in almost all of the Library's research databases (e.g. Academic Search Complete, Compendex, ABI Inform etc.):
