Use OneSearch to find books, including textbooks, articles, streaming videos, and more! A great place to start for any research project.

Additional Useful Databases

In addition to the top databases for Art and Design, the University Library has access to addition useful resources for your research.

Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary Loan (ILL)

Looking for a book or article that the CSUDH Library doesn't own? We can get it for you through a free resource sharing service with libraries across the country. 

1. Check to see if it's available in OneSearch or another library database: 

Button in a library database with text "Find it @ CSUDH Lib"

2. If no full text or physical copy is available, request it through Interlibrary Loan: 

Link in OneSearch with text, "Request from InterLibrary Loan" and new window icon.

The first time you submit a request, you'll be asked to sign up for a free account.

You can also borrow books from other CSU campuses and have them delivered to the CSUDH Library. Look for the Request through CSU+ option in OneSearch
