Research Appointments and Librarian Office Hours
Our Librarians are available to help with research projects. We can schedule anything from one-time meetings to sustained research alliances spanning the duration of the project. Tell us what you are working on, so we can make sure the library is serving your needs.
New Acquisitions and Book Requests
The Library works hard to provide the latest information to support the University's research and instruction. We are interested in hearing about advances and new directions in your fields of study. If you would like the Library to purchase an item important for research or instruction, please contact your subject specialist.
Government Information and Social Science Data
The University Library collects and supports research using International, Federal, State and Local government publications and data. We can help you find government information resources and we can also assist you with locating and identifying government-produced numeric and geographic data held by the library and cooperating institutions. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Data Management Services
The University Library can provide assistance with available applications to help you identify and obtain data in support of research and data management. Ask about the Library’s new Data Management solutions, and visit our Data Services guide.
The University California Faculty have implemented a new Open Access Policy. Our librarians can help you learn more about it, and guide you through the changing world of Scholarly Communication. http://osc.universityofcalifornia.edu/open-access-policy/. More information is on the Open Access @ UCDavis Guide.
Library Research Classes, Orientations, and Tours
We offer classes and tours throughout the year geared to introduce students to library research. Subject specialist librarians will do classes upon request that meet your needs and fit your schedule. We can do classes in the library or in your classroom. Contact us to find out how we can help jump-start your students’ research projects.
