World-Class Research

World-Class Research

Our expert library staff provide advice on the entire research lifecycle from data identification, metadata, dissemination, to preservation. The UCI Libraries partner with UCI faculty, students, and administrators to increase the impact of research and scholarly communication using new media and digital technologies. We provide services to improve widespread access and worldwide discovery for the valuable published and unpublished research output created by UCI’s faculty and students. These efforts enhance UCI’s global reputation and the open sharing of information accelerates scientific discovery.

The UCI Libraries provide one-on-one research consultations and workshops helping students, faculty, and researchers learn how to create, organize, store, and share information in ways that benefit society and increase their impact.
