Welcome to Pepperdine Libraries
Explore. Discover. Create.
Inspired by the University’s mission, Pepperdine Libraries serve our learning community by facilitating exploration, discovery, and creativity. Join us on this journey as we build the library of the future.
Library Operations
As the University continues online teaching and learning, Pepperdine Libraries is firmly committed to serving the needs of our community, offering library support services for faculty and resources for students including virtual consultations, scan on demand, and e-reserves. As part of the University's allowances for limited on-campus activities, students, faculty, and staff may reserve study seats in designated library spaces. Our expert librarians are also available around the clock to assist with your information seeking and knowledge navigation needs.
