Since the first day of classes over 50 years ago, the UCI Libraries have been an integral part of UCI’s academic life. Every student, faculty member, and researcher at UCI relies on the Libraries to help them along their academic journey.
We are the intellectual heart of the campus and an information powerhouse that fosters discovery and learning across the campus and within the community. The UCI Libraries are a Gateway to Knowledge.
The UCI Libraries are a major hub for collaboration, innovation, and creativity.
- We provide access to print and online resources that support teaching, research, and patient care.
- We support UCI's mission to discover, teach and heal - advancing health worldwide.
- Our expert library staff provide a wide range of services to assist people with their research questions.
- We help level the playing field by providing students with access to technologies (laptops, cameras, 3D printing, etc.) they can use to complete class assignments and to create new knowledge.
- We host thought-provoking public programs that help build a community of readers and foster intellectual discourse.
At the UCI Libraries, we change lives by empowering members of the UCI community to discover, learn, and create new knowledge through our library services and collections.
Supporting the UCI Libraries serves as an investment in the educational and research goals of the entire community – from undergraduate students embarking on their higher education journey to community members seeking new forms of understanding and engagement.
