The Scripps Institution of Oceanography Library building closed on June 29, 2012. The Scripps Library print collections have been consolidated into the Geisel Library. The newly named "Scripps Archives and Library Annex," located on the 3rd floor of the Eckart building on the Scripps campus, provides access to Scripps special collections and archives by appointment.
While the Scripps Library is no longer open to the public, the UC San Diego Library and Scripps are committed to ensuring that members of the Scripps community continue to have access to needed study space and library resources. Toward that end, study space will be made available to students on the Scripps campus and requested library materials will be delivered from Geisel Library to Scripps. Moreover, the UC San Diego Library will also continue to maintain and augment the university's outstanding collections in Marine and Earth Sciences, and library staff will continue to be available to consult with faculty, students, and staff. While a number of items from the collection are currently available digitally, materials from the print collections will continue to be accessible from Geisel Library.
