Do Research

Alumni are welcome to visit our facilities, and while visiting can use our electronic databases, electronic books and make copies of our print journals and books. During our regular reference hours, we are happy to assist you in your research.

If you would like to do research from home, we have created a guide for doing research using free, online sources. 


Alumni are welcome to use the Libraries collections for research and study purposes. Materials available while in the library include books, journals, article databases, and U.S. Government publications. Some materials might be restricted to current students, faculty and staff. If you have questions, please contact the reference department at Rivera Library 951-827-4393 or Science Library 951-827-3316.
