The UCSB Library's 2-story historic building has been officially closed to the public. That part of the Library will undergo renovations and will not re-open until the Library Addition & Renovation Project is completed, two 1/2 years from now.
Currently on view at UCSB's Art, Design & Architecture Museum is "Unbuilt UCSB," an exhibition that displays building projects and designs that were intended for the UC Santa Barbara campus but never constructed or have yet to be completed.
An interview on Open Access to research journals with Dr. Francis S. Collins, Director of the National Institutes of Health, and Jack Andraka, the 16-year-old inventor of a breakthrough cancer diagnostic.
The Library is discarding approximately 3 million old catalog cards as we clean out the building in preparation for construction. Contact us if you want some of these for art, research, or other projects.
Book search results in the UCSB Library Catalog (http://pegasus.library.ucsb.edu/) are now being delivered along with cover images, tables of contents, reviews from The New York Times, and other enriched descriptive data.
