About the Libraries

University Library Space Planning Project
The Visioning Phase of the University Library Space Planning Project is a year-long, campus-wide conversation with students and faculty to envision the future of the UC Davis University Library and how renovated and reconfigured physical space would help meet those needs.
Strategic Planning Process
The UC Davis University Library developed a new five-year Strategic Plan. The Plan identifies key areas for the Library to focus its efforts and limited resources, while continuing to provide the high quality research collections and academic services on which the entire university community depends.
Research Program
The UC Davis University Library conducts an active research program, including projects on technology infrastructure, data and metadata, policy and practice.
