Adapting Our Virtual Library for Ongoing Support

“The Library is closed.” This phrase is echoed among university library websites across the nation, yet does little to explain the dynamically shifting roles in which library staff and faculty find themselves.

While the physical University Library space is closed, its services are most certainly not, and Library staff continue to find innovative ways to support UCSB students and faculty.

Museum Studies Student Shares Experience Curating Library Exhibit

Weeks before the Library closed in response to the COVID-19 shelter-in-place order, a new exhibit "The Creative Edge of Collecting: The 'Nothing' of William Davies King" went on display on the 1st Floor, Mountain Side of the Library. The exhibit, which features ephemera collected by UCSB Theater professor William Davies King, confronts his lifelong practice of collecting things of little or no value. 

Late Night Study Begins at 6PM for Dead & Finals Weeks

Beginning June 2 and ending June 13, Late Night Study will begin at 6PM.  During Late Night Study, the Library is only open to UCSB students, faculty, and staff.

A UCSB Access ID Card is required in order to enter the Library during Late Night Study. Until midnight, just tap your Access Card at the cardreader at any entrance to the Library. After midnight, access in and out of the building will be through the Paseo West Entrance only.
