[Editor’s note: UC campuses have reopened since this post was created, and many of the pages linked below no longer exist. This post is maintained as an archive.]

UC’s academic community relies on library resources for teaching, learning and research. While campus library buildings are closed and scholars can’t browse the physical stacks or meet with librarians, the libraries are providing help through their websites. 

Each campus library has a central page for information about what resources are available and how to get in touch. Visit your library’s portal for more information about things like:

  • Expanded and free access to some materials during campus closures
  • Online research tools
  • Electronic delivery of interlibrary loan articles
  • Virtual research consultations
  • Requesting ebooks to add to the library’s collection
  • Streaming audio and video collections
  • Copyright guidance for remote instruction
