Dean's Message

Clem Guthro Library Dean

It is an exciting time to be a part of the Pollak Library at Cal State Fullerton. I want to personally welcome and encourage all students, faculty, staff and campus visitors to visit the Library and check out our collections, our technology, our spaces, and our learning partners. Take a moment to talk to one of the librarians, library staff, or student assistants. These are the wonderful people who help open our collections and a world of learning.

 The Library is at the heart of academic and co-curricular life on campus. The Pollak Library works hard to ensure that all members of our community feel welcome. We strive to create and nurture an inclusive, diverse, and safe environment and aim to provide collections that reflect the diversity of language, thought, experience, and perspective of our global community.

 I extend a special invitation to all Cal State Fullerton students. Learn to use the University Library early in your time at CSUF by taking advantage of our collections, our technology, our spaces but most importantly the expertise of our librarians and staff. It will help you succeed in your courses and shorten your time to degree and give you skills that you will use throughout your life.

 I welcome your suggestions on how to make the Library better. You can email me at or visit me in my office (Pollak Library South 260).
