UCI Libraries is pleased to welcome new and returning students, faculty, and staff to campus this fall.

To meet the demands of our dynamic and growing university, the Libraries are continually modernizing and focused on expanding our information resources that support diversity, equity, and inclusion. Here we highlight how the digitalization of archival materials and a commitment to open access research and affordable coursework materials is increasing access to knowledge at UCI and beyond.

I invite you to explore our calendar of free events and workshops and regularly visit our webpage to learn about our ever-expanding selection of programs, services, and collections.
