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.
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.
On May 28, the Library celebrated the six students who received the second annual UCSB Library Award for Undergraduate Research (LAUR), which recognizes students who produce a scholarly or creative work that makes expert and sophisticated use of the collections, resources, and services of the UCSB Library.
The first-ever UCSB Library Award for Undergraduate Research (LAUR) was established in 2019 as a means of celebrating and honoring those students who engaged with the Library and made expert use of our vast collections and services.
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 UCSB Library team was busy during the summer preparing for the start of the academic year. Here’s a summary of what’s changed.
For undergraduate scholars and researchers, the UC Santa Barbara Library plays a key role in their academic success. Every day — and in countless ways — students tap into the library’s vast resources and services.
“Our undergrads conduct legitimate research and are in every way functioning as young scholars,” said Jane Faulkner, a student success librarian. “What better way to honor and recognize this than to have the library award them with a prize for their efforts?”
Use Google to search for “D.A.R.E.” (Drug Abuse Resistance Education), and the top 10 results include the organization’s official website, but also the video for the Gorrilaz song “DARE.”
Use Web of Science, an online subscription database available to UCSB students via the UCSB Library’s website, and you get a list of scholarly articles and studies about the drug-prevention program.
