As the University prepares for the fall semester, Pepperdine Libraries is firmly committed to serving the needs of our community, offering virtual and in-person support services for faculty and resources for students. As outlined in Pepperdine’s COVID-19 Planning and Preparedness webpage, only students, faculty, and staff may visit the University, including the libraries. We can't wait for the day when everyone is allowed to return.
