Library Services for the Los Angeles
County High School for the Arts

The Cal State LA University Library is proud to provide
the home for one of our nation's top Arts High Schools, the Los Angeles County High School for the Arts (LACHSA) 

LACHSA offices (and entrance) are located at the SE corner of the library's north wing.

Access to Library Services
LACHSA (aka: Arts High) students may utilize the University Library's services and resources, with most of the same privileges as CSULA undergraduate students. Available services include use of the library's equipment (computers, photocopiers, etc.); access to research assistance at the reference desk; and use of library study spaces.  Arts High students have access to most library collections including: the main book collection, periodicals, reference materials, and online databases.

Borrowing Materials
Arts High students are issued a special I.D. card, and may use it to borrow books from the University Library. Book borrowing privileges for Arts High students are the same as those given to Cal State LA Undergraduates.

Arts High students  ~  Using the University Library is as easy as 1-2-3 . . .

Services for LACHSA Teachers

Teachers at LACHSA have the same "Access to Library Services" as noted above, and the "Borrowing Privileges" for Arts High teachers are the same as those given to CSULA staff.

Library Orientation Sessions 
LACHSA teachers may request to have a library orientation session given to their class. An orientation session will provide a general overview of the library including the location of materials and collections, instruction on how to use the library catalog to find materials, etc.  
If you would like to arrange a session for your class, please complete our online
Library Instruction Request Form
and in the comments box, be sure to indicate that you are requesting a LACHSA orientation session.
