University Library

Invest in Us

The University Library at CSU Dominguez Hills stands at the center of intellectual life on campus. With world-class collections and services—print, online, and in-person—our Library serves as an indispensable partner in study, teaching, and research at the university. Working closely with faculty, the library staff has developed a strong collection of books, journals, reference works, and databases to meet the ever-increasing needs of undergraduates, faculty, and graduate students.

Generous gifts from alumni, friends, community members, foundations, and businesses help sustain and enhance the efforts of our students, faculty, and staff. Due to state and university budget cuts, private support has become even more valuable in our quest to offer top-ranked services and programs.

Your Support

The University Library provides services and resources in support of all academic programs, research, and intellectual pursuits of the university community. The Library also works to help faculty members incorporate information competency skills into their curricula and enables the networking of researchers across all disciplines at CSUDH and beyond. At the same time, the Library Archives and Special Collections serve as a steward of wonderful treasures, rare books, and collections.

We believe that you should be able to support what matters most to you, so you can designate your gift to any area you desire. The University Library has several initiatives and programs that would benefit from your support. If you would like to discuss specific needs, please call (310) 243-2182.
