The University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) Library

Two libraries support student research and learning at the University of California, Santa Barbara; these are:

  • UCSB Library
  • Music Library branch

The library’s collection consists of the following:

  • 3 million print volumes
  • 30,000 e-journals
  • 34,450 ebooks
  • 900,055 digitized items

Subscription databases, e-books and Course Reserves are some of the resources offered to support student research and learning. The UCSB Library’s General Collection Development Policy does not encompass textbook acquisition. Faculty can contribute their textbooks to the library’s Course Reserves Service. However, due to demand, the textbooks for some classes are not always accessible by all students; hence the need for more options like OER.
