Pepperdine Libraries

Each of the Pepperdine libraries acts as a campus hub for knowledge, creativity, and gathering. Whether you're there to research a project, view an exhibit, or explore our extensive collections, Pepperdine libraries offer something for everyone.


"The Pepperdine Libraries provide a global gateway to knowledge, serving the diverse and changing needs of our learning community through personalized service at our campus locations and rich computer-based resources."

— Dr. Mark Roosa, Dean of Libraries

Our library system has a collection of over one million physical books and periodicals, 1.5 million full-text articles via electronic databases, rare books, and a digital press. Payson, our main library, is also home to Special Collections—a selection of materials with historical and cultural significance that range from medieval manuscripts to 20th-century film reels.

A tax-deductible gift will help us support our incredible learning community in a number of ways:

  • Grow our collection and supply students with the best access to resources.
  • Provide information literacy training and access to reference librarians.
  • Offer the latest technology, including 3D printing and virtual reality.
  • Share the experience of discovering a treasure trove of rare books and archives.
