Reinvention and innovative research are at the core of the UCLA identity.

And it's evident in the caliber of our libraries. They are not only reading reference rooms but also cutting-edge research centers. The newly renovated and reconceived Charles E. Young Research Library is more than just a repository of existing knowledge. It is now flush with idea labs, communal research pods and a host of other tools designed to promote and capture the exchange of information at every stage. It's a place that has to be experienced to be appreciated, and it is just one of 10 world-class libraries on campus.
