The Jean and Charles Schulz Information Center opened in August 2000 and houses the University Library and Information Technology. This is the third academic library in the nation to offer an Automated Retrieval System (ARS) for on-site storage and retrieval of materials.

The University Library joined a powerful automated resource-sharing network of California academic libraries, providing access to more than four million items. The Library continued to add digital resources to its collections, which currently offer 12,000 on-line journals, 5,000 E-Books, and approximately 100 subject databases.

The Waring Jones Reading Room was opened, featuring a specialized collection of Jack London first editions and other memorabilia.

The Schulz Information Center has become a highly attractive center for the campus and community. Annual “traffic” in 2001-2002 totaled 750,000 visits. In the same period approximately 13,500,000 visitors viewed the Library’s web site. There were 300,000 circulation transactions, 15,000 inter-library loan transactions, 68,000 information queries, and instruction sessions for 6,500 students.

The University Library offers a state-of-the-art automated system allowing almost seamless integration of all library processes, including the end-user online catalog, called Snoopy, which interfaces with the ARS.
