Brooks Institute Library

Brooks Library

Brooks Institute offers two libraries where students are able to enhance their learning and find inspiration; they are located at the Ventura campus and at the Cota campus in Santa Barbara.

The Brooks Institute libraries support our core subjects and general education coursework as well as graduate studies, providing access to online periodical databases in addition to books, DVDs, videos and other materials. The libraries also provide materials on the related areas of advertising, art, business management, marketing, psychology, and other topics relating to Brooks Institute’s curricula.

Only currently enrolled students may borrow library materials, although alumni and members of the public are welcome to visit and use the library’s resources for research. A full-time librarian and her staff is available to assist faculty and students in their research projects.
