Library Groundbreaking Ceremony, Oct. 1

shovelThe UC Santa Barbara Library is celebrating its future. For the first time in over thirty-five years, the Library will undergo a major renovation and expansion project. Standing at the heart of campus, the reinvented UCSB Library will be a central gathering place for intellectual and cultural activity. Infused with natural light, new spaces will invite and inspire scholars in their teaching, learning, and research pursuits.

Designed to LEED environmental specifications, the new and renovated buildings will feature a 24-hour Information Commons, collaborative research and study spaces, a state-of-the-art Special Collections facility, exhibition galleries, and will incorporate the Art and Music Library under one roof.

Join us at this exciting event as we reflect on the Library’s past achievements and usher in a new era for the entire academic community.
