How to Access Link+  (options)

  • After searching the CSU Stanislaus Library Catalog, look for the Link Plus   icon (on a search results or individual title screen).
  • Search Link+ directly (linked under Books from the library's home page).
  • Using the  Search Library Resources service, choose "Books & Media" from the results screen and then Link+ (listed on the left side under Other Book & Media options).
  • After searching a database like WorldCat or Search Library Resources, use the Find It! or Check Availability links.  (These will lead to specific Link+ titles if the ISBN for the book cited in the database matches an ISBN in Link+.) 


The Link+ (Linkplus, Link Plus) system provides quick and easy access to several million books held at selected libraries around California and Nevada.
