Re:      Library to open for research appointments


Starting October 6, and under the auspices of the Research Ramp-up, the UCSB Library Special Research Collections (SRC) will offer a limited number of research appointments for faculty and graduate students to use on-site archival and non-circulating materials from the Main Library and Music Library. The UCSB Library remains closed for general use.

For more details, and to request an appointment, please see this page.

After making a request, a UCSB Library staff member will contact you to confirm the availability of the materials of interest and help you identify relevant items so that you can make the most of your time in the Reading Room. Approved visitors will be booked for 3-hour appointments beginning between 9:00 a.m.- 4:00 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday. Appointments related to scholarly projects with deadlines (e.g., promotion, book contract, dissertation) will be prioritized.

All visitors will be required to follow the terms of use for UCSB Library Special Research Collections and to adhere to UCSB’s requirements for working on campus during COVID-19, including enrollment in the COVID-19 screening program and completion of the daily COVID-19 screening survey.
