In 1908, the library of the Davis campus began as a single room monitored by the stenographer/bookkeeper of the University
Farm Creamery. It housed bulletins and textbooks, and the books sent from the main library at Berkeley. In the years before
World War I, the librarian also served as registrar for the Farm and occasionally taught English. In 1924, the Library
occupied two rooms on the first floor, west end of the Classroom Building and housed 1,840 titles, mostly bulletins,
circulars and reports from the U.S.D.A.
In 2013, the University Library of the Davis campus occupies four buildings — Shields Library, Physical Science and
Engineering Library, Carlson Health Sciences Library, and Blaisdell Medical Library — and holds more than 3 million
