You can find all of the library's resources searching OneSearch from the library's homepage (or using the search box below). OneSearch includes books, ebooks, media, articles, newspapers, journals, reports, primary sources, and more.
Books are also great sources for overviews of specific topics, with more breadth and depth than an encyclopedia article.
Search OneSearch for books, media, articles, primary sources, newspapers, journals, and more. Selecting CSU+ will allow you to search across all CSU libraries and request items we don't have.
OneSearch contains many, many resources, which can make searching a daunting activity. Here are a few tips to guide you through the process.
Advanced Search is very useful if you know what you're looking for. You can search by title and author if you have a citation in hand, and you can limit your search in advance by material type (for example, only books or only journals), date, or language.
Filters on the left sidebar let you refine your results, by including or excluding certain types of resources.
To see full information about a resource, click on the title. This will open up a full record. If you scroll down you'll see more information, sometimes including a table of contents and description.
Sign in! This will ensure that you're seeing full search results, and will give you any requesting options you'll need if something is in our Automated Retrieval System or if you need to request from another library.

You have access not only to SSU's resources, but to all of the CSU libraries through CSU+. To search all of the libraries, select CSU+ from the drop down next to the search bar.
You'll need to sign in to see requesting options. If you find something held in another CSU library, look for the link that says Request from CSU+.
If you want an article we don't have, you'll see a link that says "Request from Interlibrary Loan." You'll need to create an interlibrary loan account, and when the article is received (usually within 24 hours) you'll be able to download a digital copy.
