Leaving Campus for the Holidays?  Remember that you can access the Libraries’ electronic full-text journals, e-books, and other electronic resources using UCI’s Virtual Private Network (VPN).  The software version is recommended.

And the UCI Libraries participate in a reference consortium that provides chat reference assistance 24 hours a day, seven days a week, when we’re not available to help you.  The Libraries’ hours expand and contract in December (for finals and the campus winter recess), so please check https://www.lib.uci.edu/hours before coming in person.  All UCI Libraries are closed Dec. 23 (Sat.) - Jan. 2 (Tue.), but online resources are always available.  Should you have questions about them or any UCI Libraries resources or services, please use the 24/7 chat reference service.  Reference librarians will provide uninterrupted service, even when the Libraries are closed.
