Re: UCSB Library hours & closure, winter break
UCSB Library will close on Saturday, December 21, for the winter holidays, including Davidson Library and its Overnight Study service, as well as the Arts Library. The Library will reopen on Thursday, January 2.
Remember that online access to UCSB Library’s research databases, e-journals, and e-books is available to UCSB students, faculty, and staff during the closure. For off-campus access to the library’s online resources and services, use the "Login" link in the upper right corner of the library website at http://www.library.ucsb.edu/ and enter your UCSBnet ID and password.
Similarly, the ability to request materials though our interlibrary loan service continues throughout the closure, though processing and shipment will not resume until after Thursday, January 2.
Reduced winter recess hours will continue until the start of the winter quarter on Monday, January 6. Detailed hours for the Library’s buildings and service areas can be found on the Library website at http://www.library.ucsb.edu/hours.
We hope you enjoy the holidays!
