What's New at the Library

UCSF Library News

  • Welcome! Library Launches New Website


    We listened to your comments and have completely redesigned the UCSF Library website to better meet your needs. In addition to the totally new look, the site gives you quick access to library resources:

    • Use QuickSearch, located at the top of every page, to simultaneously search across the website, our lists of databases and online journals, the Library Catalog, and PubMed@UCSF.
    • Access our Most Popular resources and Key Services with one click from the home page.
    • Check out the Learn and Of Note sections for info on upcoming classes and new initiatives.

    We've streamlined our pages and simplified the text to make them easier to use. As before, useful links to contact us and search PubMed@UCSF are located at the top of every page.

    Throughout the design process we interviewed staff, faculty, and students at multiple UCSF locations. Thank you for sharing your ideas and feedback with us. We hope you will find the new site inviting and easy to use. Let us know what you think.

  • Three Resources to Support Black History Month


    In celebration of Black History Month, we highlight three UCSF Library resources illustrating the history of African Americans in health care and at UCSF.

    Full text articles from the Journal of the National Medical Association (JNMA) are available from the JNMA’s inception in 1909 through 2007. Current content from the journal is available to UCSF users only. The National Medical Association (NMA), established in 1895, is the largest and oldest national organization representing African American physicians and allied health professionals in the United States. JNMA provides historical insight into the social, medical, and public health issues that continue to be of particular concern to African American patients and physicians.

  • Hearst Reading Room Offers Well-Lit Study Space


    Looking for a well-lit study table? Check out the newly configured Hearst Reading Room on the main floor of the Parnassus Library, located around the corner from the Circulation Desk.

    We recently replaced many of the carrels with large study tables to allow more natural light into the room. Like all library study spaces, the Hearst Reading Room is also equipped with wireless access and ample power outlets. We hope you'll find it a useful and comfortable study space.
