During COVID, faculty members may request physical books through our Expedited Book Delivery service and students may request loans via our Book Delivery for Students service.

Interlibrary Loan

For safety reasons, it is not possible to obtain print materials from other institutions at this time. Patrons are still encouraged to make interlibrary loan requests, and we will do our best to locate an electronic version.



Returning Materials

When it is safe to return to campus, you may place your returns in the book drop by the second floor entrance or in the book drop at the circulation desk on the first floor. At any of the graduate campus libraries, please proceed to the circulation desk to return your materials. During COVID-19, books will be quarantined for several days before they are reshelved.

Distance Learners

A student who attends weekly class sessions at a Pepperdine campus is not considered a distance learner, nor are those who are temporarily online due to COVID-19.
