Off-Campus Access to Protected Resources via the CSUMB Library Catalog

Access to electronic books (E-Books) and some Senior Capstones that are included in the CSUMB Library Catalog is restricted to current CSUMB students, faculty and staff.

Once you have authenticated yourself as a CSUMB student, faculty or staff member, you can return to a new session in the Catalog by clicking the link below and when you encounter protected resources, you should now be able to gain access to them.

Go to the CSUMB Library Catalog (you will need to start a new search to locate the items you want)

Off-Campus Access to Library Databases

Click on any of the database names on the Articles & Databases page. You will be asked for your OtterID and password. See troubleshooting if you are not able to get access to databases using your OtterID and password. Please be sure these are active, as only current students, faculty and staff have remote access privileges to the library's proprietary databases.
