Change is coming! Our new library website will launch August 16.

Physical Sciences & Engineering Library

PSE Library is closed and all collections have been permanently relocated.

  • To find print materials that were formerly housed at PSEL, please search our online catalog to find their new location.
  • More about the collections: The remaining materials from PSEL will be reviewed and high-use materials will be integrated into the collection at Shields Library, those that are used less frequently will be sent to the UC’s Northern Regional Library Facility (NRLF), and those already held at NRLF will be made available at a book giveaway to interested members of the UC Davis community. Due to the workflow impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, the library anticipates this event happening in June 2023 at the earliest.
  • Future use of the PSEL building: Floors 2 and 3 have been converted into office and collaboration space for the UC Davis Center for Quantum Mathematics and Physics (QMAP). A committee has been appointed by the Provost to oversee renovations of the lower level and first floor for use by the campus’s growing research programs in data science and artificial intelligence. The library will retain a footprint for a satellite DataLab collaboration office. Learn more.
