What's New at the Library

UCSF Library News

  • Teaching and Learning Center Taking Shape


    Construction of the new Teaching and Learning Center on the Library's second floor is proceeding quickly. As walls are framed, the planning committees are busy making preparations for the opening in January 2011. A campuswide open house is already planned for the week of January 18.

    With construction comes dust and noise. Students and other visitors are encouraged to stop by the main service desk and request a pair of earplugs. Bear with us -- the end is in sight!

The Libraries canceled current subscriptions to a number of low-use, low-impact journals in order to bring costs down.
