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. 

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.
