Named in honor of Audrey and Theodor Seuss Geisel, the Geisel Library tours explore the building, services, artwork, and the architecture of the Geisel Library. Tours are approximately 30 minutes.
Walk-in tours are offered throughout the year. No registration is necessary, but these tours are first come, first served and are limited to 15 participants. Meet your tour guide at the Information Desk (near the entrance of Geisel Library).
Walk-in tours begin at 1:00 pm on the following Thursdays during the 2013-2014 academic year:
If you are unable to make a walk-in tour, you can print this Self-Guided Tour brochure to make your visit to the Geisel Library more enjoyable. The Self-Guided Tour brochure is also available at the Information Desk. Visitors are asked not to go on Floors 4-8 of Geisel Library as they are the quiet study floors.
Groups must place a request for a tour at least a week in advance. For larger groups it is recommended that you submit a request as soon as possible. Submit a Tour Request.
Geisel Library is not open for tours by groups of any kind (including self-guided tours) during the first week of Fall quarter nor the last 2 weeks of the UCSD Academic Fall, Winter, and Spring quarters. (See UCSD Academic Calendar for specific dates.)
These tours are intended to be general and not for specific UCSD courses. For tours of the Geisel Library for UCSD courses or departments that are conducted by UCSD's subject librarians, UCSD faculty/staff can contact the appropriate librarian directly.
Those wishing to tour the Biomedical Library Building (BLB), please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Visitors to the UCSD Library are requested to respect the needs of the UCSD community by minimizing interference, not blocking traffic, and keeping visits short.
