The library’s growing collection includes more than 80,000 books, 3,000 films, 200 current print periodical subscriptions, and access to around 100 databases. We typically add 2,000 new books and 200 new DVDs each year. The online catalog provides information about books, videos, periodicals, and other materials that comprise the library’s collections at both the Burbank and San Diego campuses. Borrowers may access their library accounts through the catalog to renew items or place items on hold as well as to view outstanding materials. Materials not owned by Woodbury Library may be requested through InterLibrary Loan, thus making the scholarly resources of the world available to the campus community.
Digital Collection - While continuing to develop and manage collections of traditional printed materials, Woodbury’s Library also provides access to a number of digital resources such as electronic journals and magazines, e-books, images (including our digital archive of historical Woodbury-related photos), streaming video, e-reference sources, and online periodical indexes and databases. Access to the library’s online catalog and research databases is available 24/7.
Scholarship - The library is your partner in learning, research, study, and teaching. Connecting scholars with information and related services, the library’s faculty and staff provide the human element that helps guide scholars toward eventual self-sufficiency in effective and efficient research and development of critical evaluation skills for a lifetime. By providing access to targeted, worthy information resources for research and inspiration, the library supports the University’s mission of excellence in the quality of the educational environment.
Space & Facilities - The library’s physical spaces provide access to collections which encourage creativity and exploration in a technologically and aesthetically inviting environment. Comfortable lounge-type seating is arranged throughout the main building, inviting browsing of new books, newspapers, and a variety of popular magazines. To accommodate diverse study needs and learning styles, there are spaces for individual quiet study as well as group study areas. Desktop computer workstations are provided for general use, and wireless access to the internet is available throughout the library facility.
