Third Annual Most Accessed Theses/Dissertations Lists

The ‘Most Accessed’ lists analyze prior year and lifetime usage of SDSU’s electronic theses and dissertations. The statistics include full text downloads, previews of the abstract, electronic citations, and copy requests. This is the Library’s equivalent to a Best Sellers’ list.

Gov Pubs Move

government publications have moved
We've moved our Government Publications materials! Both US and California materials have been relocated from the 3rd floor of Love Library to compact storage. Don't worry, any needed items can be paged through the Circulation Desk. These collections are undergoing a comprehensive review, following the guidelines set forth by the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP). This review began in January of 2019 and will continue as we review the collection over the next several months.
