  • Music in the Library: Rin Tin Tiger

    Rin Tin Tiger

    Rin Tin Tiger is an alternative folk rock trio from San Francisco. Featuring high energy, lyric heavy, acoustic guitar lead songs about life in contemporary society, Rin Tin Tiger's sound is often described as a blend between early Bob Dylan, Violent Femmes, and Tupac. Learn more about Rin Tin Tiger.

    There will be light refreshments and free chair massages (first-come, first-served).

  • Journal Cancellations: Feedback Needed by May 24

    Every year, the UCSF Library reviews its journal subscriptions as part of the renewal process for the upcoming year. Due to the sharp UC budget cuts, the rising cost of electronic journal and database subscriptions, and decreased usage of print journals, we must identify savings through the reduction of print subscription costs.

    For 2014, we are proposing 44 print subscriptions for cancellation. With the exception of two print-only subscriptions, all titles would remain available online to the UCSF community.
