Library Services

Pepperdine Libraries offer an array of services at our campus locations as well as information online through extensive electronic resources and databases. Highlighted below are some of the services available. For more information and additional services, please visit the Pepperdine Libraries website


The library provides online research guides specifically for Graziadio students, including guides for specific courses and business industry guides. These guides focus on business content and provides you with relevant resources for your research assignments. 

Get Help: Make a Reference Appointment with a Librarian

Librarians are available to meet with students either in-person or via Zoom to assist with research questions, recommend resources, or provide search strategies for your research topic. You can make an appointment with a librarian here. 

Study Rooms 

Group study rooms can be reserved online in the Malibu, Drescher, Irvine 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 or subject coverage. 

Interlibrary Loan 

Do you need a book or journal article that the library doesn't own? Pepperdine's Interlibrary loan service  (ILL) can usually obtain the item for you. Use ILL to submit a request for the item that you are looking for. 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.

The Malibu campus locations include the Payson Library, Drescher Campus Library, and the Harnish Law Library.
