The Library, located on the second floor of Building 5, features a wide range of research databases as well as a book collection of 50,000 volumes and subscriptions to hundreds of magazines, journals, and newspapers. The Library is a member of the Peninsula Library System (PLS) consortium which gives students and our community access to the complete PLS online catalog. As part of the Learning Commons, the Library provides spaces for collaborative learning and access to educational technology. Our workshops and special events enhance the experiences of our entire community of users.
