Geisel Library’s 8th Floor and Tower Restroom Renovations Continue to Move Forward in Winter 2018

Posted On: January 11, 2018

The long-awaited and much-needed renovation of the interior spaces of Geisel Library continues to move forward as Winter Quarter kicks off. Geisel’s 8th floor will remain closed through Winter Quarter 2018 in order to create an updated, modern space for individual study. Construction work is ongoing and the 8th floor  is expected to reopen in Spring Quarter 2018. Simultaneously, the restrooms on Geisel’s floors 4 – 7 continue to undergo renovation with the addition of new ADA-accessible and gender-neutral restrooms on 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 are expected to be completed in late Spring Quarter 2018. Generally, construction will occur in one shift, from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. 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 continues to serve as the 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.

UC San Diego Students Receive Library Research Prize for Outstanding Research Skills

Posted On: October 10, 2017

Congratulations to the 2017 Undergraduate Library Research Prize Winners!

Recognizing that outstanding student research goes hand in hand with knowledgeable use of library resources, collections, and services, the UC San Diego Library has announced four honorees for the 2017 Undergraduate Library Research Prize. Their research topics ranged from fish communities living in low oxygen zones in the Gulf of California to the role of women as playwrights in Restoration England.

The annual award is sponsored by the UC San Diego Library, the Vice Chancellor for Students Affairs, and the UCSD Alumni Association. Awards are given in the Social Sciences, Arts, Humanities and Physical and Life Sciences categories. They include a cash award of $1,000 and $500 for first and second place, respectively.

“It’s very rewarding to see the students’ passions, growth as scholars, and their special relationships with their faculty mentors,” said Tammy Nickelson Dearie, Interim University Librarian. “While the winning entries showcase the rich intellectual diversity of student research taking place across campus, there’s a common thread. Each of these students deepened their research experience by investing extra time and effort in using the resources in the UC San Diego Library.”  Read more…
