Charles E. Young Research Library

Research Library Renovation

The UCLA Library has completed renovations to the first floor and lower level of the Research Library. The first phase, which focused on the lower level, was completed in December 2009. The second phase, which focused on the first floor, reopened to users in stages beginning September 19, 2011.

The renovations have turned the major public spaces of this classic midcentury design by A. Quincy Jones into a research library for the twenty-first century. Enhanced facilities offer students and faculty in the humanities and social sciences comfortable, innovative spaces in which to study and conduct research as well as places for collaboration, exchange, and contemplation. Descriptions of each element are available via the links in the column to the left; a virtual fly-through of the first-floor redesign is also available.
