After a hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Interlibrary Loan (ILL) resumed borrowing books from other libraries on Monday, October 19.
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.
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.
UCSB Library now offers pickup and mail delivery services for UCSB students, faculty, and staff to access circulating Library research materials.
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.
Note: Submissions for this event are now closed as we are at capacity. Thank you for your interest.
“Deep Dish with the University Librarian” is a regular event that offers students the opportunity to meet with University Librarian Kristin Antelman and provide feedback about UCSB Library.
Join the University Librarian, Kristin Antelman, for an exploration of how the Library can better serve students on their mobile devices. We’re looking for 20 students to join us for free pizza and a focus group conversation on the topic of “Library+Phone.”
The University of California has been out of contract with Elsevier since January. Unfortunately, in late February the negotiations stalled.
