As the intellectual heart of the campus, the UCI Libraries foster experimentation, expression, and experiential learning. Each day, thousands of students enter library buildings to borrow computers and books, use our learning spaces for collaboration and creativity, or to study independently. They depend on the Libraries' collections, services and spaces for inspiration and learning outside of the classroom.
Our talented librarians are information specialists helping students, faculty, and researchers find credible sources and manage vast amounts of data. We make technology available for every student– from phone chargers to laptops, cameras to 3D printers. We are a gateway to knowledge that is empowering research and discovery on campus and beyond.
Whether it is getting help with their research from the “Ask Us” desk staff or collaborating with classmates over an assignment--students find what they need to thrive at the Libraries.
