When the Library Addition and Renovation Project begins in mid-June, we will be emptying the existing two-story building. SEL (Sciences-Engineering Library) materials are currently located in this section. While the majority of the SEL collection will be boxed and sent to a temporary offsite storage facility, where it will remain inaccessible during the project, a high-use subset will stay in the building. Patrons who rely upon SEL books regularly for research or teaching are encouraged to check books out by June 14 before they are relocated.
Favianna Rodriguez, the Oakland-based activist artist best known for bold posters and digital art that explore issues of social justice, has donated her personal archive to the UCSB Library.
A video tour of the UCSB Library produced by the Graduate Division and the UCSB Library for graduate students is now being featured on the new GradSpace (Gaucho Space for graduate students) and promoted through the GradPost on campus. The tour introduces graduate students to subject librarians, graduate study lounges, Special Collections, The Study Bean, and more.
The Library congratulates Claudia Jimenez (Acting Head, Access Services) and Alyce Harris (Ethnic and Gender Studies Library staff), who were presented with Unsung Heroine Awards from the UCSB Professional Women's Association (PWA) at their conference earlier this week
The SEL (Sciences-Engineering Library) New Books area has been relocated in anticipation of the upcoming construction project, allowing for additional seating on the second floor. New books that arrive to the SEL collection will now be integrated with the main New Books area on the first floor.
The Library is adding 53 tables with power to the 4-story and 8-story buildings. Many of the tables have already been brought into the Library and distributed throughout the floors; outlets on the tables will be operational by the end of the week. The additional tables will help to offset the loss of seats that will be inevitable during the upcoming construction project. As soon as the quarter is over, we will also be moving as many tables and chairs as possible from the 2-story building, which is closing for renovation, into the remaining buildings.
