Celebrating Open Access Week 2016

Open Access to information – the free, immediate, online access to scholarly research, and the right to use and re-use that research as needed – has the power to transform. Join the Library for a week of interactive activities to learn more about Open Access and opportunities to take action.


A One Book, One San Diego Event

Celebrate 10 years of One Book, One San Diego with the UC San Diego Library and KPBS. Hear from 2012 One Book author Zohreh Ghahremani, whose debut novel follows an unusual friendship between two very different young women who form a bond in Iran during the turbulent and dangerous 1960s.


Rare Film Screening & Discussion

Join the Library, UC San Diego School of Global Policy and Strategy, and the 21st Century China Center on Tuesday, Nov 1 at 5pm for a rare short film from UC San Diego’s inaugural visit to China in 1979. Professor Paul Pickowicz and other members of the delegation will share remembrances of the visit.
