Getting the Full Text of an Article

One of the following buttons appears in almost all of the Library's research databases (e.g. Academic Search Complete, Compendex, ABI Inform etc.):

The menu will tell you whether we have it full-text online, in print or you have to request it via BeachReach.

If you have a citation to an article (but are not in a database),  the simplest way to find out if we have the article online or in print is to search by journal title in COAST (the online catalog).


Not Available at CSULB?

Is your article not available at CSULB?

Put in a request through CSU+ straight from OneSearch to get full-text of any article. 

You can request an item directly if you can't find it in OneSearch.
