Visiting Scholars' Guide


Every year UC welcomes international visiting scholars. Some of you may have used American libraries before, while others will find out that libraries in the United States are very different from the libraries in your countries. This page is your guide to the UC Libraries. It will help you understand how the libraries work and what services and resources you can find here.
