  • Cookies need to be enabled to access library databases remotely. If you are not sure if your cookies have been enabled, check it out.

  • If you have not changed your password recently and are denied access, you may need to clear your cache. To learn how to clear your cache, go to the Off-campus Library Database Access page.

  • If you have recently added Identity Protection Software, you should disable the software before you can access library databases remotely.

  • After trying the steps above, if you are still having trouble logging into Library databases with your MyCSULA account, please contact the ITS Help Desk for assistance at (323) 343-6170. If you have forgotten you MyCalStateLA username and/or password, you will need to visit the ITS Help Desk in person with your campus ID and proof of enrollment.
