The UCSD Libraries, a member of the Association of Research Libraries, consist of nine campus libraries1 with combined collections of more than three million volumes. Integrated services dependent on information technology are a hallmark of the UCSD Libraries.

Components of the information infrastructure include INNOPAC, the integrated library system; the DAMS; the UCSD Libraries website; and the UCSD campus website. UCSD works actively and collaboratively with the other nine UC libraries and the California Digital Library to develop and manage shared collections and services available to all UC faculty and students.
