The Mystery Collection contains copies of mystery, detective, spy and thriller fiction. There are more than 4000 titles in the collection. All volumes are fully cataloged in COAST, the library's online catalog and are available for loan. The Mystery Collection was started in 1994 with donations from CSULB librarians, faculty, staff and others.
Books are added to the Mystery Collection solely through gifts and other donations.
