As a graduate student, is there any funding I can use for research articles CSUN is not subscribed to
You are probably thinking of Inter Library Loan. It's a service where we can get materials for you from another institution, if we don't own those materials ourselves.
There is no charge for borrowing materials or getting photocopies within the CSUN Interlibrary Loan "network," which includes the other 22-campus CSU system, a host of reciprocal libraries and our document suppliers. Requests from undergraduates are not made outside of this network agreement, so no charges are involved. For graduates, faculty and staff, materials may be requested from any library in the U.S. and many abroad. The Oviatt Library subsidizes most fees that the lending library may charge. However, because of budgetary constraints, limits are set on the subsidies. Faculty are allotted $500.00 per year, doctoral students $400, graduate students $250.00, and CSUN staff $100.00.
