This guide will help you get to know the UC San Diego Library better. On campus, we have two buildings - the Geisel Library Building near the Price Center and the newly named Wong/Avery Library by the School of Medicine. You are welcome to use either library. The Geisel Library's tower has some great study spaces including the 8th floor with its unique furniture and a focus on quite individual study. The Wong/Avery Library's second floor is an open study space but for more silent focus, head to our quite study room with individual carrels.

You might be asking yourself the question, Where do I start finding more information about the Library?  The following are some key resources you will want to know and perhaps, bookmark on your device.
