Summer brings additional hours of daylight — and now, extra hours in the UCSB Library.
In response to student demand, hours for the Library’s Late Night Study service will be extended during Summer Sessions, starting June 20, 2016. Late Night Study will end at 2 am (instead of midnight) Sundays through Thursdays, and midnight (instead of 9 pm) on Fridays and Saturdays. The closing times were selected based on data showing the highest-demand times in the Library.
Access to the Melvyl catalog and Interlibrary Loan (ILL) requests will be unavailable from 6 pm Saturday, June 5, through 9 am Sunday, June 6.
Melvyl (the catalog for all University of California campus libraries) and ILL are powered by the Online Computer Library Center (OCLC), which will be conducting a data migration during the outage period.
The UCSB Library will offer extended Late Night Study hours starting Sunday, May 29, as Dead Week begins, continuing through finals. Hours for the Music Library and other locations vary. For more information, see our Library Hours pages.
