To prepare for the upcoming construction we need to empty the two-story section in Summer 2012. This consists of relocating collections, study spaces, library staff, service desks, IT servers, and lots of furniture and equipment.
The collections in the two-story section, which largely consist of science and engineering materials and government publications, are currently being reviewed. We are removing journals and other items that duplicate online content. This process will be ongoing 
All remaining materials in the two-story section must be moved into storage before construction starts. These materials will be largely inaccessible (with the exception of U.S. government publications) until the end of construction.
UCSB faculty, staff, and students can use interlibrary loan to request materials from other UC libraries.
