This page describes how to get books that aren't available in Pollak Library.

1. Books at other CSU campus libraries may be requested through CSU+ using the OneSearch discovery tool. Books not available through CSU+ may be requested through ILLiad. This service is free to CSUF students, staff and faculty.

2. When searching in OneSearch, set the scope of where you are searching (at the very top of the screen under "Search for:") to Everything+

This will expand your search from the CSU system to nearly all libraries.

3. Drive to another library that has the books you need.

To find a library with the books you need, check one of several library catalogs with the holdings of local libraries.
WorldCat.org - 1.3 billion items in 10,000+ libraries worldwide
UC Library Search - University of California libraries
CSU libraries - Individual
Orange County Public Libraries
Los Angeles Public Libraries
