About The Library


The Robert E Swenson Library, named after the founding president of Cabrillo College, provides an extensive collection of services for students and faculty, making it the busiest learning center on campus. We have a large online database collection for student research, a core book collection covering all campus instruction areas, a large course reserve collection of textbooks and materials required for many classes, lots of individual and group study spaces, a growing collection of artworks, and friendly librarians available to help with your information needs.

Anyone, including community members, is welcome to use the library and its resources within the building. Cabrillo students, faculty, and staff are our primary, and priority, users. All who come to the library are expected to respect all basic library policies.

A librarian is scheduled 15 hours weekly in the Watsonville Integrated Learning Center (ILC), located on the second floor of the Watsonville Center. There are over 1,000 items in the reserve, reference and browsing collections. Materials in the reserve and browsing collections are available for check-out, while the reference collection can be used in the ILC only (non-lending).
