National Library Week is an annual celebration of the contributions of our nation's libraries and librarians. All types of libraries - school, public, academic and special - participate.
We're not celebrating this week with wild parties, but we do encourage you to visit the library, relax in the Morrison Room, view an exhibit, browse in the stacks, and take a few moments to reflect on what all this means in your life.
The Cal libraries support the research and instruction of the campus community and serve visitors from all over the world. Please consider giving to help us with collections and services.
The library subscribes to more than 900 premium online information sources. To learn more about what we've added in the last month, see our list of new resources.
» Frantext (French textual analysis tool)
» Leiden University Repository (articles on African studies and more)
» PsycCritiques (reviews in psychology)
