The University Library

In beautifully designed facilities, the CSUDH University Library fosters student success, scholarly research, and academic excellence through the provision of information resources, primary resources, learner-centered assistance and experiences, support of undergraduate research, and welcoming, technology-enhanced environments that facilitate lifelong learning, collaboration, and innovation. The University Library is comprised of a talented and synergistic team of 12 library faculty and 22 staff members who are committed to the academic success for all users.

As a Hispanic-Serving Institution (HSI), our University Library is committed to facilitating thriving students and educators through a comprehensive suite of services that include 24/7 reference and research support; curricular- driven information literacy instruction; robust archival and general, physical and digital collections; student-centered course reserves; Inter-Library Loan services; and an engaging learning environment. Contributions to the popular Affordable Learning Solutions program are a point of pride; the partnerships with faculty, the Campus Bookstore, and Academic Technology save students more than $1 million annually.

The University Library is committed to fostering equity and creating and sustaining a diverse and inclusive environment. We have taken recent action to examine our practices, policies and procedures through a diversity, equity, inclusion, and social justice lens, with the intent of revising these to reflect our commitment. In 2021, the University Library completed a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Audit which identified our strengths and opportunities with respect to our DEIJ imprint. The resulting report has provided us a roadmap to guide us forward in operationalizing and deepening our commitment to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Justice in all we do. In addition, Library faculty and management have developed statements in response to the Black Lives Matter movement to articulate our Library's commitment to addressing issues of discrimination, racism, bias, and inequities.
