The records of the Office of the University Librarian document the administration of the UC San Diego Library. Prominent subjects
include the establishment, growth, and activities of the University Library on the UC San Diego campus.
The Office of the University Librarian directs the operations of the UC San Diego Library in support of the University's academic
and research mission. The University Librarian is the chief administrative officer for the Library. The UC San Diego Library
provides access to information and resources that support the University's research, teaching, patient care, and public service.
In 2011, the Library responded to several years of significant budget cuts by restructuring; evolving from a decentralized
model of several smaller branch libraries to a centralized model resulted in the permanent closing of several of its buildings
and the reduction of its physical footprint to the Geisel Library building and the Biomedical Library building. The University
Librarian reports to the Executive Vice Chancellor, Academic Affairs and is supported by several Associate University Librarians.
