The UCSB Library is a great resource to take advantage of while you are in graduate school. In the main campus library building you will find graduate student study rooms, the Study Bean (a place to buy food and drinks to keep your energy up as you study), special collections materials, and more than three million books and journals.
If you have not yet done so already, meet your Subject Librarian. Subject Librarians can help you find the journals, books, and rare materials that you need for your research projects. They are very knowledgeable about the trends and resources available in your field. View the new GradPost video, "Meet Your Subject Librarians," to learn about how your Subject Librarian can support your research.
