Santa Clara University is a comprehensive Jesuit, Catholic university located
in California's Silicon Valley, offering its 8,800 students rigorous
undergraduate curricula in arts and sciences, business, and engineering, plus
master's, Ph.D., and law degrees.

Distinguished by the highest retention rate and ranked second among all
master's universities in the West by U.S. News and World Report, Santa Clara
University is California's oldest operating institution of higher-education.
The University is focused on creating an academic community that educates
citizens and leaders who will build a more just, humane, and sustainable
world.

  
The Santa Clara University Library is a vibrant and vital center for learning,
inspiring both intellectual pursuits and community engagement. The SCU Library

based on a consultant's report. Recommendations are already being implemented
to streamline workflows and processes. One of the final steps will be the

University Librarian, AUL and the consultant's recommendations. The vision for
technical services includes defining units for electronic resources, metadata,
cataloging, and resource acquisition. The AUL, working in conjunction with the
library's Scholarly Communication Working Group, takes a leadership role in
the university's scholarly communication initiatives including the ongoing
development and growth of a new institutional repository ScholarCommons
