We are pleased to announce the opening of two new quiet study spaces in the Parnassus Campus Library.
Located on the fifth floor, the Blumenthal East Asian Room offers students a light-filled, comfortable study space. Students can enjoy the views of the adjacent Japanese roof garden through its western windows and the Golden Gate to the north. The room contains a variety of furniture, including leather easy chairs, tables, and carrels. UCSF students can access the room with their campus ID cards.
The education and reference librarians at the UCSF Library have launched a new, co-authored blog, In Plain Sight. Highlighting ways to access, manage, present, and publish information, the blog is intended for faculty, researchers, clinicians, and students.

The client/download version of SciFinder Scholar will be retired on June 30, 2011. After that, you will only be able to access SciFinder via the web. If you currently use the client to access Chemical Abstracts and other databases, you are advised to begin using SciFinder Web as soon as possible.
Search for books and journals right on your mobile device! UCSF Mobile Web now includes an option to search the Library Catalog. From the Library options page, choose the link, "Find Books and Journals."
The mobile library catalog is currently optimized for iOS and Android. Later releases will support a wider range of mobile devices.
Effective February 15, 2011, the UC system will lose online access to new articles from journals published by Informa Healthcare. All articles published online through 2010 will continue to be accessible under the terms of the UC-wide contract. Through the contract, UCSF had current access to 115 titles from Informa, which was formerly part of Taylor & Francis Publishing.
A new exhibit highlighting prints and scrolls from UCSF's East Asian Collection is now on display in the Parnassus Campus Library's first floor gallery. Enlarged reproductions of several of the prints also adorn the walls of the Teaching and Learning Center on the second floor. The large-scale prints enhance the TLC's "huddle spaces," which were designed to promote impromptu collaboration among students and faculty outside of the classroom.
