Books from Education Psychology Library Moving

Empty library shelves

If you've been in the Education Psychology Library lately, you may be wondering what happened to all the books. Is all the information online? Have we moved beyond the world of books?

Not quite yet! The books aren't gone. They're just moving to the Main Stacks and the Social Research Library. You can request any book via OskiCat and choose the most convenient library for pick up.

Tolman Hall (home of the Education Psychology Library) will be decommissioned in 2016. The replacement building, dubbed Berkeley Way West, won't have a library, but will house the schools of Education and Public Health and the department of Psychology.

Comments, concerns, questions? Contact Susan Edwards, Head Librarian, Social Sciences Division

Access one of the richest US government collections in the world #lovemyFDL

Have you ever used US Census statistics to support your research? What about quotes from a presidential speech, a Supreme Court opinion or congressional hearing?

Maybe a USGS map, government dataset or report has bolstered the argument of your research paper, book, or article.

Data from the US government can be incredibly helpful.  If you agree, show us some love on social media this month.

Use #lovemyFDL to tweet about your experience, and mention the library, @ucberkeleylib

As a Federal Depository Library (FDL), the Library has received materials from the Government Publishing Office for the past 130 years. Now, the Library has one of the richest US government information collections in the world.

Stop by a reference desk or send us an email if you need help finding information from the US government.
