Accessing Library Resources from Off-Campus

The Library subscribes to a number of databases that are for the use of current CSUN students, faculty and staff only. The Library's proxy server provides a means for eligible users to access these databases from off campus.

When a user who is off-campus clicks on a link to a restricted resource, they will be prompted to log in using their CSUN User ID (using all lowercase characters) and password. Current CSUN students, faculty, and staff with a valid Library account will then be connected to the selected resource.

Sample Login Screen

Sample screen: active screen appears when you choose a restricted database.

Am I Eligible?

You must be a current CSUN student, faculty, or staff member with a valid Library account to access restricted library resources.

The status of your Library account may be verified by viewing your patron record.  Please visit OneSearch  and login using the link in the upper right of the screen.
