ScholarWorks is the California State University open access institutional repository. ScholarWorks provides online access to the scholarly output of CSU faculty, staff and students. Currently, the University Library uploads CSUDH graduate student theses to ScholarWorks and, according to author preferences, makes either the abstract or the entire thesis publicly accessible.

If you are a faculty member and are interested in having your work uploaded to ScholarWorks, please contact Digital Initiatives Librarian Dana Ospina ( to learn more about the process and open access requirements.
