As we launch into 2020, the UCI Libraries reflect on various measures of our triumphs and successes of 2019. In our Libraries, study rooms were reserved 23,281 times. Over 1,003,904 pages were printed by our patrons. Mobile chargers were checked out more than 1,696 times. In addition to the anticipated renovations to Science Library, we also updated spaces in Langson Library and Grunigen Medical Library, located at the UCI Medical Center in Orange. In 2019, the UCI Libraries were selected as one of the 50 libraries nationwide to host the American Library Association’s (ALA) Americans and the Holocaust traveling exhibition.
In 2020, we foresee that the Year of the Rat will also bring prosperity to UCI Libraries. But our work has just begun. As we strive for a more brilliant future, UCI Libraries will continue to evolve to meet the rapidly changing needs of the academic community we serve.
At the UCI Libraries, we are proud to provide vital resources and cutting-edge technology to support the education, scholarship, and research goals of UCI, and we could not do it without your support.
