Library Resources for Online Students


Welcome to CSP's Library Resources for Online Students! This guide is a quick overview of our online resources for library research. And if you are local to St. Paul or plan to visit, you are always welcomed to stop by the library in-person too!

Library Website

The library website can be found at We encourage you to bookmark this page in your browser for easy access to OneSearch (for more about OneSearch, see below). You can also bookmark the Subject Guide for your program or major-- see more about Subject Guides at the bottom of this page. 

Get Research Help

Our library chat is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. CSP librarians on chat can help you locate a specific item, strategize your research, overcome dead-ends while using databases, and more!

If you have any questions, please reach out to a CSP librarian. We are here to help you succeed!

Using OneSearch

OneSearch is the main search box on the library homepage. This tool searches all of our video and article databases, as well as our eBook and print book collection.

You can also useOneSearch to request items if CSP doesn't have them. But don't worry, CSP has access to most well-known academic journals.

If you hit a paywall or can't access and academic article you found in OneSearch, a database, Google Scholar, or online, ask a CSP Librarian and we will help you get access.

Resources for Your Major

OneSearch will help you find many sources. However, you may need tools for your major or class. Talk to a librarian or look at a subject guide page for additional search recommendations.

  • Subject Guides - These guides provide recommendations for the best resources for each major and/or course. Use the Subject Guides tab to locate these guides. Many of your Blackboard courses will also provide a link to a customized Library Resources/Subject Guide page for your specific course.
  • Databases - Databases are collections of materials you can search, much of the content full text. On the Databases tab, you will find a list of databases organized by subject and title. Use this list if you want to go beyond the resources found in OneSearch or you want to narrow your search to subject-specific resources.
