The Leatherby Libraries is committed to serving Chapman University students enrolled in the 66 graduate degrees and programs that the University offers. We provide a full range of services and resources carefully curated for graduate-level education and research.

The Leatherby Libraries offer customized resources, subject specialist librarians, one-on-one consultations, and extended borrowing and space reservation privileges for graduate students.

Additionally, graduate students at Chapman University enjoy a generous checkout policy:

  • Master’s students may check out up to 75 items for eight weeks with two renewals.
  • Ph.D. students may check out up to 100 items for 16 weeks with two renewals.

The “Ask a Librarian” feature on our website is an excellent online tool for finding the resources needed for your research.  A liaison librarian is also available for all graduate students. Your liaison librarian is your first contact for research and library questions!

We are genuinely committed to offering comprehensive help in all areas of research.
