UC San Diego Libraries New Mobile Site Provides On-The-Go Access to Library Information

The UC San Diego Libraries new mobile site—http://libraries.ucsd.edu/m—which was launched last fall, provides on-the-go access for all smart phone users to essential library resources and services, including library hours, directions, and research tools. Users can also search and find library materials via a mobile version of the library catalog, as well as text, chat, or call library staff right from their phone using the Ask A Librarian service.

The UCSD Libraries are among the first UC Libraries—and only a small percentage of academic libraries in the U.S.—to launch a Web site for users of mobile devices.

The Libraries will be enhancing and adding new features to its mobile platform on a regular basis, and welcome feedback from users. Please send us your feedback at: http://libraries.ucsd.edu/suggestions.html

The UC San Diego Libraries, ranked among the top 20 public academic research libraries in the nation, play an integral role in advancing and supporting the university's research, teaching, patient care, and public service missions. The nine libraries that comprise the UCSD Library system provide access to more than 7 million digital and print volumes, journals, and multimedia materials to meet the knowledge demands of scholars, students, and members of the public. Each day, more than 7,300 people stream through one of the university's nine libraries. The Libraries' vast resources and services are accessed more than 87,500 times each day via the UCSD Libraries' web site.
