Resources

UCLA’s campus libraries are closed as of Friday, March 20. This means that staff, students, and faculty do not have access to the physical collections, but there are many digital resources that you can access remotely, including assistance from our IS Lab Staff, as well as our dedicated Information Studies librarian, Diane Mizrachi. Please make sure that you have VPN or proxy set up to access resources from off campus.
