Welcome back, Gauchos!

I want to welcome all new and returning students. Even though we have to welcome you virtually this year, I want you to know that all of us in the Library are working hard to support you so that you have a productive fall under these less than ideal circumstances.

Special Research Collections to Offer Research Appointments

Starting October 6, UCSB Library Special Research Collections (SRC) will offer limited research appointments in SRC’s Reading Room for UC Santa Barbara faculty and graduate students to access on-site SRC materials that are not available online and to access non-circulating materials from the Main Library and Music Library that are not available via the pickup and mailing service. UCSB Library remains closed for general walk-in use.

Building Reopening FAQs

When will the Library building reopen?

The exact date isn’t yet known, but when it is, we will post it to the Library website. Our reopening will occur in conjunction with state and county public health guidelines for the reopening of higher education, which could result in adjustments to our plans.
