Find a Book

OneSearch Library Catalog
Start with the OneSearch library catalog to find books. If you want to see online/ebooks, after you’ve searched for a book/topic in the OneSearch library catalog, use the “Refine my Results” panel on the left, and select "Full-text online" under Available at CSUEB and "Books" in the Resource Type section.

CSU+ is a free service that students, faculty and staff may use to borrow books from other CSU libraries. Requested books are usually delivered to the Hayward campus within 2-4 days, or can be mailed to your home.

Interlibrary Loan (ILL)
If the book you want isn't in the OneSearch library catalog or available from CSU+ then you can request the book for free via InterLibrary Loan (ILL). Log on with your NetID and password and fill out the request form. To make sure that you get the requested item as quickly as possible, give as much of the publication information as possible including: Author, Title, Publisher, Date and Place of Publication. Contact us if you need any help with finding a book! Be aware, they usually have a shorter loan period.
