Online Library Catalog


CAU Library is pleased to present new material not only in our physical library located on campus, but additional online resources for easier access for students and faculty members as well. The new website has a new format which guides patrons to useful resources for professional development, research, and academic materials. We have begun to build our new e-library which includes an online catalogue through Library World that allows users to browse our current holdings, check the status of loans, and reserve materials remotely.

We have also acquired “DIGITAL KYOBO SCHOLAR DATABASE”, an online database vendor that allows faculty and students to access the latest journals and research from a variety of fields. CAU Library has also added many books to our library in order to broaden our library collection for your academic goals. Please come and explore our new and improved space! Additionally, all online resources are available 24/7. For any inquiries or reference questions please contact the librarian. California Arts University Librarian librarian.cau@gmail.com
