A guide to resources for business research

Finding Books

Books are ideal sources for information when you are looking for in-depth coverage on a subject, the history or chronology of a topic, or overview of a big idea. (Hint: a book doesn't need to be read cover-to-cover to be used for research. Determine how appropriative of useful the book will be by reading the table of contents or summary!)


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.

For more information on how to find books using the library's catalog, visit the library's guide to OneSearch.

Finding Books with OneSearch

OneSearch is the library's main search interface, where you can find almost all the resources the library has to offer. This video will demonstrate some of the key features of OneSearch.

Requesting Books from Other Libraries

Can't find a book you need in the library's collections? Request a book through the library's Interlibrary loan services. To learn more about how to borrow materials from other libraries, watch a short video below.
