  • Hours Reduced Due to Budget Cutbacks


    The UCSF Library is reducing its hours of operation effective September 7, 2009. This is the result of reduced staffing levels, one of several steps the Library is taking to achieve budget targets. The shorter hours of operation affect both the Parnassus Campus library and Mission Bay.

    The reduced hours were determined by reviewing available usage data and eliminating hours when UCSF use is the lowest. For hours the Library is not open, secure classrooms at both Parnassus and Mission Bay will be available to students. See details on these and other alternative study spaces.
