In order to address the ongoing need for study space and seating while the Library is under construction, Classroom 1575 on the first floor is now open as a student study space outside of regular work hours.
The pieces exhibited in the Library were winners in UCSB’s first annual Art of Science competition, held during the summer of 2013. Winners were judged on their aesthetic excellence as well as scientific or technical interest.
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.
