Restructuring: UC San Diego Discipline-Based Libraries Being Eliminated As of June 30th
UCSD’s discipline-based libraries, which include the Biomedical Library and academic collections within Geisel Library, will be eliminated beginning June 30 as part of further internal restructuring for university libraries. Following these transitions, the Arts, Science and Engineering and Social Sciences and Humanities libraries within Geisel, in addition to the Biomedical Library, will become part of a single cohesive library structure in efforts to centralize the Libraries.
A campus notice was sent out last Thursday that informed all faculty, staff and students of the transition.
Many staff members and librarians will remain in the same locations, although some will be reassigned and relocated to different areas.
In addition, a new program devoted to “Library Spaces” will be included in the new organizational structure. The program will manage the user spaces in all library buildings, helping to identify ways to enhance and improve the spaces.
