Dean's Welcome

Welcome to the John M. Pfau Library! Our physical location in the center of the beautiful CSUSB campus echoes our strategic position at the center of learning and academic life at CSUSB. We support and enable learning, creativity, and scholarship by providing excellent library materials, services, and programs.

Our highly capable librarians and staff have been working diligently over the years to create a modern hybrid library that provides services and resources appropriate to the current technological environment both in person and via the Web.

This Website, which was re-designed and updated in 2011, is a portal to all of the valuable and useful resources the library has to offer.

Many of the spaces within the library building have been reconfigured and repurposed to make them more welcoming and appealing to our users. We have also updated policies and procedures to fit the needs of a new generation of students, faculty, and staff.

As a result of all these improvements more people are coming into the library to make use of our collections, attend programs, use group study rooms, consult a librarian, or merely to unwind and drink some coffee in the library's café, Café au Lib. We invite you to be one of them!

We are always looking for ways to improve our products and services. Please feel free to contact me with any suggestions you might have at or call 909-537-5102.

We look forward to providing the best possible library experience to everyone—students, faculty, staff members, or members of the larger community. We also appreciate your support as we continue to maintain and improve this wonderful library, the John M. Pfau Library at CSUSB.
