Dean's Welcome

Welcome Warriors! I invite you to visit the University Library often, either via the Library website or by visiting in person.  The Library has a wealth of resources, print and electronic, and we strive to help you succeed academically.  Remember . . . start your assignments early and see the librarians for research assistance at your earliest convenience.  All of the Library faculty and staff are eager to help you make this semester the best ever academically!

University Library Mission

The mission of the University Library is to provide access to information resources and services that facilitate teaching, learning and research, and to provide an environment that encourages and enables those in our diverse community to expand their intellectual, cultural and artistic horizons. 

University Library Strategic Plan

The goal of the library strategic planning process is to synthesize and document current thinking about library collections and services at California State University, Stanislaus, to provide guideposts for current and future pathways to change, and to measure the effectiveness of actions and accomplishments.

In 2008, the University Library conducted a Support Unit Review which included a self-study and an external review. For more information on the results of the Support Unit Review, click here.


In 2011 and 2012, the library surveyed students and faculty, respectively, to gauge satisfaction with and usage of various library services. Results from those surveys can be viewed below.
