The Silicon Valley University library’s mission is to serve the informational needs of the student body as outlined in the American Library Association (ALA) standards and guidelines.
Learning Resource Center & Library
As part of its effort to provide instruction using the latest internet technologies, the university has established a web-based Electronic Resource Center. The center is a digital research facility, created to provide students with the opportunity to make the most use of vast information resources available on the internet.
The university has an onsite library which contains publications in the fields of Computer Science and Engineering, and General Education. Faculty members and students can access major professional journals and scholarly articles through nationally acclaimed database such as ProQuest, ACM, and IEEE. To use SVU’s e-Library to access the onsite library catalog, the user will have to login with the Use ID/Password that was assigned and approved by the SVU librarian.
The university library / Learning Resource Center serves its students and faculty free of charge. The library has thousands of hard copy materials in its collections. Both students and faculty also have access to SVU’s e-library. Students are expected to follow the university library policy while using these resources.
