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 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.
