Our CSUEB Library services are online and ready to help you!

Our Databases A-Z index thousands of electronic resources and have full texts of most of them. For those items that do not have immediate access to full text, InterLibrary Loan services provides excellent service in getting you PDF's of articles that you need. 

•Course Reserves (Textbooks in the Library) Using A2E2 funds, we are providing more and more access to course materials in the library. Students check the library Course Reserves to see if there is an electronic copy of their textbook available. If you would like, I can check and see if your book is there, or if there is a way to access the needed ebook. Here's a useful FAQ.
