Visit the Library

Your academic success at UC Davis depends in large part on the library. Its resources help you add depth and breadth to what you learn in the classroom. In fact, students who use university libraries earn higher grades and become active lifelong learners. Think of the extensive assets that you can use: 10 million items, including books, journals, databases, music, maps, and photos, among other resources in print and digital formats. You’ll have extensive borrowing privileges just by being a UC Davis student.
