CEAS Library celebrates National Library Week 2013

The week of April 14-20, 2013, the College of Engineering and Applied Science Library joins libraries in schools, campuses and communities nationwide in celebrating National Library Week, a time to highlight the value of libraries, librarians and library workers.

Libraries today are more than repositories for books and other resources. As the heart of the campus, community, or school, libraries are deeply committed to the places where their users live, work and study.

Librarians work with students, faculty, small business owners, the public and many others to discover what their communities needs are and meet them. Whether through offering e-books and technology classes, materials for English-language learners, programs for job seekers or those to support early literacy, librarians listen to the community they serve, and they respond.

The CEAS Library serves the UC College of Engineering and Applied Science by providing an extensive research collection of 180,000+ Books, 70,000+ E-Books, 35,000+ E-Journals, as well as Expert Reference assistance, Study Spaces, a beautiful Reading Room and Art Collection, and an Info Commons computing space.
