Computer & Database Access
Reference Computer Use. The Library provides computers in the Reference Area (Level 1) to support academic research. In order to optimize this resource for current CSUB users including students, faculty, and staff, workstation access requires individuals to login with their NetID. Guest accounts are available for two hour access per day on the reference area level 1 computers.
Guest Account Applications & Access. Guest account applicants must be in junior high or be older and have a photo ID. Photo ID is required at time of guest account application.Only one guest account is allowed per individual. Any fraudulent attempt to apply for multiple accounts, to provide inaccurate application information, or misuse computers outside these restrictions will result in loss of all access to CSUB Library computers and Library facilities. Library personnel have discretion at any time to limit or block guest account usage to insure optimal access for current CSUB users and to enforce CSUB acceptable use policies.
Guests are allowed a maximum of two hours of computer use per day, but current CSUB students, faculty, and staff have first priority in using the workstations. Immediate access may not be available for guest account users. If the network reaches set use levels or CSUB users are waiting, guest users will be logged off or asked to give up their workstations. Guest account access is not guaranteed.
Remote Access. All current CSUB users have remote access to library databases using their CSUB ID. Library databases are accessible by guest account users in the library but licensing agreements do not provide guest users with remote access.
