  • Adopt-a-Book: Help Us Restore and Preserve 150 Rare Books

    UCSF’s Rare Book Collection contains more than 15,000 volumes, including items from the 15th century, collected over the past 150 years through donations and gifts from faculty, alumni, and friends of the Library. Over time, many books have deteriorated so that additional use would add further damage to their condition. As a busy research library, it is important that we keep these materials accessible to present and future researchers.

  • Library Zones: Choose the Right Noise Level for Your Needs

    Students working collaboratively in Parnassus Library

    What's your study style? Do you prefer silence, or do you like to study in groups? In an effort to support a variety of volume preferences in the Parnassus Library's study spaces, we've designated four types of zones throughout the building.

    Quiet Study - This zone offers a quiet space for intensive study. You'll find Quiet Study signs posted in the UCSF Quiet Study Room (5th floor) and in the Browsing Room (4th floor).
