Library Services

University of California Library
Members of the IR/PS community enjoy access to the University of California (UC) Library. The UC Library includes over one hundred libraries located throughout the ten UC campuses. Collectively, these libraries make up the largest research/academic library in the world, with over 34 million volumes in their holdings and significant digital collections.

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) Services
The purpose of Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is to provide support to faculty, students, and staff by borrowing materials not owned by the UC San Diego libraries. Requests may be made in person, by phone, email, or campus mail. UC San Diego faculty, students, and staff are also eligible for direct borrowing privileges at other UC campuses and at most Stanford libraries. Please contact the Library Information Desk, (858) 534-2528 or visit the Interlibrary Loan web site for more information.

Library Photocopy Services
As a companion to Interlibrary Loan, the library also offers photocopies of articles in journals owned at UCSD but not available electronically in full text. A small fee is charged to cover handling costs. Requests can be submitted directly from most California Digital Library databases (such as Medline, INSPEC, BIOSIS or Current Contents) using the "Request" feature. Students also may send requests via Library Express by using the "G" command in line mode or the "Request" button in the Web version, or by calling or emailing the Interlibrary Loan unit that supports their discipline.

UC San Diego Libraries

The UCSD Libraries is made up of six libraries with services and programs designed to support the academic and programmatic pursuits of the UCSD faculty, students and staff.  

Reference Services
UC San Diego librarians are available to help with your research needs. Visit the UCSD Libraries Ask A Librarian page for information about contacting librarians via chat, emil, text, or phone.

Language and Disability Resources

Skill Development Center
Students whose first language is not English and others needing assistance with writing skills are encouraged to use the Skill Development Center located in the IR/PS Computer Lab. 

Students with Disabilities
Students with disabilities, including learning disabilities, should register with the UCSD Office for Students with Disabilities (OSD). The OSD provides an outline of accommodations each student may request from his or her course instructors. Such arrangements must be made well in advance of examination date with the course instructor.
