J. Paul Leonard Library

In 2008, the University embarked on a major expansion, seismic strengthening and renovation of the J. Paul Leonard Library building. Scheduled to be completed Fall 2011, it will create a state-of-the-art teaching and learning center, and improved home of the J. Paul Leonard Library and its special collections, the Sutro Library, Academic Technology and the Center for Teaching and Faculty Development. The fully accessible, renovated facility will provide expanded study and computing space for users, growth space for collections, access to new technologies, and an improved environment for work and study. The Library offers access to about four million items, including 665,000 books and bound periodicals. Users also have virtual access to one of the largest collections of electronic resources in the CSU system; research databases alone exceed 125. During construction, collections and services are available in alternative locations. For more information visit
