Associate Professor/Library Faculty Systems Librarian

Welcome Back!

We are excited to have everyone back. We are looking forward to serving all students, faculty and staff. We have added new resources and will be highlighting them in this blog. See the postings below for two new journal titles.

Student Needed to Make Video More Details – click here

We are making a video about how students use the Palomar College Library. We want to interview students to discover what we can do to improve the quality of their time spent in the library.

If you are a student and would be interested in being filmed for this video, please contact us at We would especially like to have students who would be willing to make comments in Spanish.

Please see the videos below.

President’s Associates Fund Textbooks for Library

The San Marcos Campus Library and the Escondido Center Library have added over 150 textbooks to its Reserve section thanks to a grant by the President’s Associates. The first two weeks of the spring semester have been spent adding these textbooks to those that the instructors have given to be placed in the Library.

Students may use the textbooks while they study in the Library. If the program goes well, the associates will continue to grant funds for book purchases so that the reserve section will have a significant number of textbooks for students.

Textbooks are listed in the online catalog. Click here to view the catalog. If you do not see yours, please drop by or call us (760-744-1150, ext. 2612) to find out if your textbook is available.

Updated Resources on The Environment and Sustainable Living

We have had some very thought-provoking presentations on the Campus Explorations theme of The Environment and Sustainable Living: Global Crises and Solutions. If you have the opportunity, please join us each Wednesday at 2:00 p.m. in Room P-32.

In support of these presentations, the Library has updated its research page with links to new articles, websites and other material on this subject. These resources are useful for faculty, students and staff. Anyone interested in preserving our environment and saving our planet will find something of interest here.
