Use of Materials
Humphreys University Library uses the time-saving open stack system and offers a two-week checkout that’s dependent on book availability. Certain materials, including reference books, current textbooks, magazines, and videotapes are for use in the library only.
Two Libraries, One Great Resource
Humphreys University provides two major learning centers for students, alumni, faculty, and the community. The undergraduate library provides resources and information for students studying in any of our undergraduate programs, from liberal arts to paralegal studies. Our law library has collections of federal and California codes, California and regional reporters, California administrative regulations, attorney general opinions, law journals and treatises.
The Stockton Library is located in the 100 building on the northwest of the campus. The Modesto Library is located in the 3A building next to the lounge.
Databases are searchable collections of information–some are very broad in nature, while others are for specific subjects. Most databases help you find articles published in scholarly journals, magazines, and newspapers. Some databases help you find primary sources, while others help you find books, technical standards, media sources, and more.
The following databases are available for HU students:
