West Coast University Maintains a Reference Library at Each Campus
The West Coast University Library is the knowledge center serving the curricular, research, and professional needs of students, faculty, and administration. The library maintains full-service branches, one at each campus, and a satellite branch at the Orange County Classroom Expansion. Library hours of operation are scheduled to meet the needs of the students, faculty, and staff of each campus. All locations offer resources and services that strengthen and enhance the University's various academic programs.
The library actively engages institutional learning by effectively delivering materials in physical and virtual environments. Print collections include general and subject specific reference materials, monographs, serials, manuals, scholarly works, and trade publications arranged according to the Library of Congress Classification System. Electronic resources including selected databases from LexisNexis®, EBSCO, LIRN®, and ebrary's Academic Complete™ provide students and faculty access to thousands of full-text articles and e-books. Multimedia tools, web resources, and online tutorials are also available at each location. Explore the collections housed at all the campuses using the West Coast University Library catalog, available online or on a mobile device using the LibraryWorld Search® app.
West Coast University encourages students, faculty, and staff to become familiar with library resources and services. The Library is a central component of student-centric learning that leads to professional success by instilling the information literacy skills necessary for today's changing environment.
