Welcome Warriors! I invite you to visit the University Library, which is now located in the Library Annex. The Library Annex is a group of modular buildings located just north of the University Library undergoing renovation. Of course, you are also invited and encouraged to visit the Library website. 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! If you have any questions or concerns about library service, please do contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 209-667-3607.

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. The most recent strategic plan is the 2007 University Library Strategic Plan.
In 2008, the University Library conducted a Support Unit Review which included a self-study and an external review.
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.
