Welcome to Pepperdine University Libraries, your base for scholarly research.

In March 2012, Pepperdine University Libraries opened ACE: The Academic Center for Excellence. ACE is a one-stop-shop providing assistance in research, writing, speech, presentation and media production, as well as subject tutoring.  It is both high-tech and high-touch. This space is designed for students to engage in learning and also supports a peer-to-peer teaching and learning model. Find out more information about ACE here.

Finding the right information for your research or assignment is not always easy, the library's InfoGuides can simplify the process. InfoGuides feature research tools and strategies from experts on how to find good resources within a specific subject area. There are also InfoGuides that offer general tips and tutorials, including citation help. 

A great database to begin your research in is the **NEW** Academic Search Complete database. This database is multidisciplinary and has full text for close to 9000 journals and half of those are peer-reviewed!

When you know the title of the journal that you are looking for, you can use the Library's Journal Search Engine and access articles (online and in print).

You may have heard about a database that is perfect for your research or want to try one you have used in the past. You can access electronic databases by title or by subject.

Items on reserve for your class can be picked up at the corresponding Library's Circulation Desk. A list of Course Reserves is available online.

E-Reserves can be found online and require a special login.

As always please, Ask Us if you have any questions!
