Skyline College is a community college that is located in San Mateo County, California, within the limits of the city of San Bruno, California, south of San Francisco.
According to Skyline College-produced information on Community College Review, Skyline has a reputation of being an outstanding, medium-sized, two-year college, rich in diversity. A state-wide study found that Skyline was one of the top five California community colleges in terms of transfer to independent schools. The campus is situated immediately west of a crest that overlooks the San Andreas fault ï¿½ the uppermost parking lot provides a good view of the fault. Architecturally, the campus dates from the late 1960s. It was built of pre-formed concrete slabs bolted together with steel in anticipation of a great earthquake. The college library is run by the Peninsula Library System.
The libraryï¿½s fundamental purpose is to support the learner-centered teaching mission of Skyline College and the San Mateo County Community College District.ï¿½ The libraryï¿½s mission is to directly contribute to the achievement of student learning outcomes at the course, program, and institutional levels.ï¿½ - See more at: http://www.skylinecollege.edu/library/mission.php#sthash.jWKj3zTH.dpuf
