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 Library is preparing for a gradual opening of student study space and we are hopeful we will be able to offer this during spring quarter. Our reopening will occur in conjunction with state and county public health guidelines for the reopening of higher education. The exact date isn't known, but when it is, it will be posted to the website.

Compost Bins Arrive at the Library

Thanks to UCSB Sustainability and Associated Students Recycling, compost bins are now in the UCSB Library to encourage students, staff, and faculty to participate in waste diversion on campus.

A study by UCSB Sustainability found that more than 80 percent of the waste collected at the UCSB Library can be diverted from the landfill, which is one of the reasons the Library was selected to receive the new bins.
