UCI Libraries
A Gateway to Knowledge


Today an academic library is not just a building with books and librarians; it is an information powerhouse that fosters discovery and learning across the campus and within the community.  Sure, UCI Libraries still provides print resources and subject librarians; however, the library system at UCI also provides access to everything from three-dimensional printing and digital scholarship services to public programming and community archiving.


As one of the founding academic units on campus, UCI Libraries has connected thousands of users, including faculty, researchers, scholars, students, staff and community members, to information resources. It has facilitated the creation, preservation, and sharing of knowledge across all disciplines.


This knowledge lifecycle is supported at four library facilities: the Jack Langson Library, the Science Library, and the Libraries Gateway Study Center and the Forest J. Grunigen Medical Library at UC Irvine Health in Orange.


Furthermore, the libraries support the campus and community with resources and services in the Libraries Gateway Study Center, Multimedia Resource Center (at the Science Library) and the Orange County & Southeast Asian Archive Center (at Libraries Gateway Study Center).


UCI Libraries continues to stand as a Gateway to Knowledge. Supporting UCI Libraries serves as an investment in the educational, research and professional development goals of the entire community from undergraduate students embarking on their higher education journey to long-standing community members seeking new forms of understanding and engagement.


UCI Libraries Funding Priorities:


Growing for the Future
Support for the UCI Libraries’ Growing for the Future fund, ensures that it has the resources it needs to support our world-class research collections, emerging technologies, lifelong learning, discovery environments, expert assistance for scholars, and improvements to enhance our spaces to meet the needs of the 21st Century scholar.


Special Collections and Archives 
Special Collections and Archives (SCA) houses the UC Irvine Libraries' collections of rare books, manuscripts, archives, photographs, and other rare and special materials. Some of the most notable collections include the Orange County Regional History Archives, Southeast Asian Archive, Critical Theory Archives, and the University Archives.  Support for SCA insures that scholars have access to important primary source material for their research, for generations to come.
