University Library Overview

Welcome to UC Davis! We developed this guide to help you navigate the library resources available to you.

The UC Davis University Library includes Shields Library, the Physical Sciences & Engineering Library, the Carlson Health Sciences Library, and the Blaisdell Medical Library in Sacramento.

We employ over 40 professional librarians and 100 staff members who work to make our collections of almost 4 million books, 58,000 journals, magazines and newspapers, and over 800 research databases discoverable and useful.

The Library has an open stacks system, which means you have direct access to our collections. For complete details about library services, locations and research tools, please visit our website.

We're looking forward to seeing you at the library!

Get Started

  • Library Cards
    Your Student ID card serves as your library card.

    If you are a student in an Extension program, you need an authorized application from the Extension office. Check with your instructor if you have questions about the library privileges for your specific program.
  • Terminology
    This table includes translations of frequently used library terms into Chinese, Korean, Japanese, French and Spanish. We have also created a glossary of library terms and definitions.
  • Workshops
    Take a free class to learn more about using library resources!
