In consultation with UCSB’s Academic Senate Committee on Library, Information, & Instructional Resources, the UCSB Library has begun phasing out the main Annex, which contains primarily back runs of periodicals. By relying on the UC Regional Library Facilities (RLF) for access to these materials the Library will be able to redirect $250K per year spent on the lease and upkeep of the Annex into the acquisition of new collections. There will be no loss of collection content and Library users will be able to request and receive PDF delivery of articles from the RLFs within 1-2 business days, or print volumes within 2-3 days.
