UCSB researchers now have access to German Literary Expressionism Online (Der literarische Expressionismus Online).
The California Digital Library, in collaboration with UC Libraries and the Academic Senate, is pleased to announce the planned September 1 launch at UCSB of the University of California Publication Management System. The system is currently being used by other UC campuses.
The Circulation Desk that you usually see on your left when you walk into the Library hasn’t disappeared — it’s literally just around the corner. A temporary Circulation Desk has been set up on the 1st Floor in the elevator lobby of the eight-story building. It was created because the current Circulation Desk area is being remodeled into a completely new space.
Tossing trash and recycling beverage bottles just got easier in the Library. Always looking for ways to contribute to the university-wide goal of zero waste by 2020 (diverting 95 percent of total waste generated on campus from landfill), the Library was awarded a grant from UCSB’s TGIF (The Green Initiative Fund) to purchase 200 new waste receptacles.
All UC campuses now have access to Digital U.S. Bills and Resolutions, 1789 – Present.
The end — and a beginning — are near. As our expansion and renovation project reaches its final stages, we are gearing up to welcome and introduce you to the reinvented UCSB Library at the crossroads of campus. As the construction comes to a conclusion, we’d like to share with you what to expect in the next few months.
All UC campuses now have access to the International Encyclopedia of the Social & Behavioral Sciences, 2nd ed.

You’ll find Danelle Moon, UCSB Library’s new Head of Special Research Collections, in her office on the 3rd Floor. Look for her on the 2nd Floor, too: as the author of a book in the Ethnic and Gender Studies Library called Daily Life of Women During the Civil Rights Era. It’s one of many scholarly texts by Moon, who has two master’s degrees: in library science and history, with a focus on women’s history.
Beth Witherell, editor-in-chief of The Writings of Henry D. Thoreau Project at the UCSB Library, has newly transcribed a Thoreau manuscript that recounts his trip to the site of a shipwreck off Fire Island, New York, that claimed the life of author and journalist Margaret Fuller.
