UC Berkeley: Public Health Library Merges with Bioscience & Natural Resources Library

From the UC Berkeley Library: 

On June 4, two important libraries in the Life & Health Sciences Division will come together under one roof as the Marian Koshland Bioscience, Natural Resources & Public Health Library.

Library staff and collections from the Public Health Library will be integrated into the Bioscience & Natural Resources Library in the Valley Life Sciences Building.


To reach this decision, the Library issued a call for comment in September and received feedback from several departments and key campus stakeholders. The reconfiguration comes after months of collaboration between librarians and deans from the School of Public Health, the College of Natural Resources, and the Division of Biological Sciences.
