Trial Databases (Under consideration for purchase or implementation)

Snapshots (Proquest)    FULL-TEXT
Snapshots is a marketing database that provides marketing reports/studies on various industries and countries. Included are reports and data about market size, market segmentation, market-share weblinks, market distribution, and market sources.


Metalib allows you to select and simultaneously search multiple databases--indexes, library catalogs and other resources-- using one common search interface. View e-journals subscribed by the Library and holdings of print journals available in the Library.

Using Metalib, you can:
  • Select and search up to five databases at once
  • Merge duplicate records from multiple databases
  • Search each database using its own search interface as an option
  • Link directly to the online full text of each record if available
  • Create custom lists that are available in your Personal Account when you login--Personal Database List, Personal e-Journal List and Alert Profiles
  • Locate print and online full text journals available at the Library
  • Store and manage records that you select in your own personal E-Shelf

Current CSULA students, faculty, and staff should log-in using your User ID (your Golden Eagle One Card barcode number, no space, 204500XXXXXXXX) Password (your last name). Other users may use the Metalib as a "Guest" by selecting the "Guest Log On" button. "Guest" users do not have access to all databases and personal features.

If you would like to recommend that the Library subscribe to any of the trial databases offered above, please email your recommendations and reasons to the Library Web Administrator at Your recommendations will be forwarded to the appropriate Library College Services or Department Liaison Librarians.
