Your campus library can provide you and your students with access to the highest quality electronic books, online scholarly journal articles, streaming audio and video, and other material for instructional uses -- all at no cost to your students. Your library’s collection of electronic books and journal articles can be especially useful in upper division classes where textbooks are not available to cover the more specialized curriculum.
All CSU libraries begin with a systemwide core collection of over 50 research databases, nearly 29,000 full-text electronic journals and magazines, and a growing collection of eBooks. Each library augments this core collection with their own digital subscriptions tailored specifically to your campus’ curriculum, giving you access to hundreds of databases, millions of scholarly journal articles, and whole lot more.
