IN THE SPOTLIGHT

UCSD Libraries:
Serving more students and faculty
than ever before

UCSD Libraries, the largest research library system south of Los Angeles, recently acquired its three-millionth volume and marked this significant milestone with community celebrations. While the campus celebrated this achievement, University Librarian Brian E.C. Schottlaender noted that as the campus and surrounding science and technology industries grow, there is an increasing demand for the Libraries’ collections and services.

Gifts to the UCSD Libraries help fund initiatives to meet the ever-increasing need for print and digital library resources that serve students, researchers and the general public in their ongoing pursuit of inspiration and knowledge. Through The Campaign for UCSD, gifts at any level have a meaningful impact on the Libraries’ collections and, ultimately, on the growing number of scholars who rely on these materials and services. For example, a gift of $50 allows the Libraries to acquire and process a volume for the Social Sciences & Humanities Library, and a gift of $100 can fund a new book in the sciences. For more information contact Dyanne McIver, director of development for the Libraries, at (858) 534-8490, or dmciver@ucsd.edu.
