Now Accepting Applications for the Library Student Advisory Council 

Do you want to shape what we do at the Library, meet new peers, and have fun at the same time? Be a changemaker! Join a group of students dedicated to connecting the Library to the campus student body.

The UC San Diego Library is in a dynamic period of change. We believe your voice is essential as we strive to meet our students’ evolving academic needs.

The Library Student Advisory Council (LSAC) is a forum for ongoing dialogue between students and Library staff with the goal of providing the diverse UC San Diego student community with the best possible library services, collections, and spaces.

How do I apply? 
We’re taking applications for the 2017-2018 academic year, with a deadline of Sept. 30, 2017. For more information about the Library Student Advisory Council, visit lib.ucsd.edu/lsac. To apply, click here.

What would I gain from the experience?
Serving on the Council will provide an opportunity to share with Library staff concerns of highest priority to students. Participation can provide connections for future references; be an opportunity to meet new friends, and help create the kind of UC San Diego community students want. You will be an influencing voice in shaping the Library services and spaces important to you and your peers.

Changes Are Coming! Geisel Library Renovations Slated for Fall 2017

Posted On: September 5, 2017

Temporary Closure of Geisel’s 8th Floor to Begin September 2017 

The long-awaited and much-needed renovation of the interior spaces of Geisel Library is moving forward, with Geisel’s 8th floor scheduled to be closed as of Friday, September 22, 2017 in order to create an updated, modern space for individual study. Work will begin promptly and the 8th floor is expected to reopen in Winter Quarter 2018. Simultaneously, the restrooms on Geisel’s floors 4 – 7 will undergo renovation and new ADA-accessible and gender-neutral restrooms will be added to each floor.

Throughout the course of the restroom renovations, Geisel’s floors 4 – 7 will remain open, and there will be restroom access on each floor at all times. Restroom renovations on floors 4 – 7 will likely continue through Winter Quarter 2018. Generally, construction will occur in one shift, from 6:00am to 3:00pm. Exceptions may occur and Library staff will notify users in advance when possible.

With the continuing need to provide quiet study space, Geisel’s 7th floor will serve as the new, temporary, silent study floor during the closure of the 8th floor, and the Biomedical Library Building has been declared a Quiet Building indefinitely. The collection of oversized materials that was on Geisel’s 8th floor has been moved to the 6th floor. The Roger catalog can be used to find the current locations of any books.

The renovation of the 8th floor marks the next phase of the Geisel Library Revitalization Initiative (GLRI), which began in 2015 with the construction of Audrey’s Café. Responding to student, faculty, and staff feedback, the renovation sets out to transform the interior public spaces of Geisel Library by dramatically enhancing the user experience through modern, technology-rich spaces that advance research and learning.
