Q. When trying to get the full-text of some articles I am being asked to pay.

I am accessing articles through the CSULB library search. However, when trying to get the full-text of some articles it says I need to pay. The CSULB library site instructs me to use the "Get it at CSULB" white box, but that just loops me back to the CSULB search site information. In other words, each site sends me back to the other or wants me to pay. What am I missing?


It is possible that while a specific article is listed in a database, our subscription to that journal may not include the year that the article was published.

The University Library is able to get a copy of the article, at no charge to you, if you submit a request via BeachReach.  To do that go online to BeachReach (link below) and use the citation information for the article to complete your request.

Distance learners need to indicate their status every time they make a BeachReach request by answering YES to the question on each form "Are you are distance learner?"
