How do I search for books and e-books?

To search for books go to the CSUSM University Library homepage, click on Books & More.

In the search box, you can search for a specific title or a general topic and then click on the Search button.  

You will be taken to a results page where you can use limiters on the left to filter the results further.

  • While the Library building is closed due to COVID-19, we recommend selecting the Full-text online and Books facets and then Apply Filter to quickly and easily locate eBooks.
  • Click on the Guide to Library eBooks for directions on how to open an eBook.
