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. 

GauchoPrint is Here

GauchoPrint - UCSB’s new student-funded printing solution that allows students to use their 200 pages of print credit at any GauchoPrint printer - is now available at the UCSB Library. 

The new printers in the Library also allow users to print from laptops and mobile devices. These are services students have long been requesting at the Library and the Library is excited to offer them.

Library Public Computer Updates that May Affect You

To better protect your privacy, UCSB Library public computers will now delete all user data after each logout, including logouts due to 15 minutes of inactivity.

To prevent your work from being lost, we recommend saving your files often to cloud storage, such as Google Drive, or saving often to a personal USB drive. The Services Desk has a small stock of USB drives available if you do not have your own.

Adaptive Technology Center Renovation Complete

The UCSB Library has completed the renovation and expansion of the Adaptive Technology Center (ATC), a space for students with disabilities to access technology that makes it easier to keep up with their studies.

The space now has 11 work stations (it previously had six), a new electronic access card reader, new carpet, new paint, and new furniture. A shared wall was also removed to expand the center into one larger room.

New Presentation Practice Room in the Library

UCSB Library is pleased to announce a new Presentation Practice Room available for reservation by UCSB students, faculty, and staff. Located on the 1st Floor Mountain Side (room 1506), the space allows you to practice, refine, and record oral and multimedia presentations for classes and seminars, conferences, teaching preparation, the Grad and Undergrad Slam, thesis defenses, and other events.
