Transfer Student Guide to the UCSB Library: Library Services

An introduction to the services and resources of the UCSB Library for transfer students.

Research is Challenging. Librarians Can Help!

You will be using the Library for much of the research that you do at UCSB, either by using our online resources from your dorm or from off campus, or coming to the Library in person when that becomes available.  Your research will likely involve finding books, finding journal articles, and finding Course Reserves material, and we are ready to help you with all of those.  But the Library has much more to offer!  See the links below for some of the many ways that we can help you.
