The quickest way to find ebooks is to use OneSearch, which is the biggest, broadest search Pfau Library offers.
Make sure you choose the scope "Books & Media (CSUSB)."
Once you have some results on your screen, look under "Refine my results."
Choose the options "Full-text online" and "Books."
Apply the filters, and all of your results will be ebooks.
1. When you are done typing in your search, do not hit enter or return on your keyboard. Instead, click on Books & Media (all CSU). Books at other CSU libraries can be ordered through our CSU+ service.
Please note that while you will see both print and ebooks at this library, you will see only print books at the other CSU libraries. This is due to restrictions in the contracts libraries must sign with the ebook publishers.
Q: How long does it take?
A: Usually 2-3 working days, although this can vary if the book has to come from northern California. Rest assured that all items are sent as quickly as possible.
Q: Can I order my textbooks through this service?
A: Sorry, no.
