Get Help: Ask-an-Expert
Do you have a question you need help with? Send it to Ask-an-Expert. A staff from library services will respond typically within 24 hours (weekend questions are answered the following Monday).

Study Rooms
Group study rooms can be reserved online in the Malibu, Drescher, Irvine Encino and West LA libraries.

Electronic Journals and Databases
Get access to thousands of journal articles online through the library's databases. You can also view the entire alphabetical listing of databases, as well as select a database by type.

Interlibrary Loan
Do you need a book, or journal article that the library doesn't own? Pepperdine's Interlibrary Loan service can usually obtain the item for you. But don't wait until the last minute to request it! Books can take up to ten business days to obtain, and journal articles about a week.
