Santa Cruz: Libraries
The first floor of the Central Services Building
housed the library at the Santa Cruz campus during 1965-66, until
the completion of the first unit of the University Library. Under
the New Campuses Program established in 1962, basic undergraduate
library books were purchased in triplicate at San Diego for the
developing campuses at Santa Cruz, San Diego, and Irvine. The 75,000-volume
core collection thus provided was supplemented by purchases and
gifts at Santa Cruz.
In addition to the centralized library collection,
small libraries for cultural reading were planned for each of the
residential colleges. The campus bookstore was located within the
Pictures, tape recordings, periodicals, newspapers, ephemera, and
books relating to the history of the campus comprise one major collection;
another dealt with Santa Cruz city and county materials. The third
collection was that of South Pacific studies.
