Shaping A Library is the inaugural exhibit located in UC San Diego’s newly-renovated gallery space at Geisel Library. Tracing the history of the Library’s site design process, construction and expansion (1965-1993), the exhibit draws on unique materials held by Special Collections & Archives. From William Pereira’s original spherical concept for Geisel Library up to Gunnar Birkerts’ glass-walled expansion, architectural drawings, photographs and documents illustrate the creation of our beloved campus monument.

A digital version of this exhibit will be permanently available in January 2023 on the Special Collections & Archives site.
