In-Person Requests

The Southern Regional Library Facility(opens in a new tab) (SRLF) is storage facility for infrequently used materials from the five southern UC campuses. It is located about a twenty-five-minute walk from the Charles E. Young Research Library. A campus map(opens in a new tab) showing the location of the SRLF is available.

Users can request and pick up items in person at the SRLF reception desk Monday through Friday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Only those with the X campus parking permit can use Parking Lot 17 at the SRLF. Others can park in Parking Lot 11 close to the SRLF. Those who hold a valid parking permit from any UC campus can use Parking Lot 11 free of charge. Others must pay an entry fee. Please see additional parking information on the SRLF website(opens in a new tab).
