About this library
Grand Avenue Library houses a collection of lesser used but important materials in a variety of formats, as well as older editions that have been retained for research purposes. Currently holding more than 1.5 million volumes in its 81,000 square feet, the library reflects USC Libraries' commitment to retaining and preserving the continuously growing print collection. Grand Avenue Library offers electronic paging of its holdings through HOMER, the online library catalog. Paged materials are delivered to Leavey Library's Circulation Desk, typically within one business day, and held for the requestor for 10 days. Patrons also have the option to pick up materials at the Science and Engineering Library.
All patrons with a valid USC library card may use the electronic paging service through HOMER or, if necessary, may make an appointment to visit the facility by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. The Grand Ave. Library is located on the second floor of the Carol Little Building (CAL), three blocks east of campus, at Jefferson Blvd. and Grand Ave. All visitors must have a picture I.D. to enter the building.
The Grand Avenue Library's monograph collection covers every academic discipline. Early 20th century literature and science are particularly well represented.
The library's journals collection includes a large number of scholarly journals. The journals are for library use only, but may be paged to Leavey Library or the Science and Engineering Library.
The Grand Avenue Library contains thousands of historic vinyl records, laser disc, cassette tapes, CDs, VHS tapes and DVDs.
The microfilm/microfiche and microcards collection includes a wide variety of journals, newspapers and the Early American Imprints series.
