The Arts Library, located in the Luskin School of Public Affairs building, will be undergoing seismic upgrades and as a result, is closed to patrons through summer and early fall 2022. We are aiming to physically open to patrons in late October and will provide updates as we have more information. Most collections will be available to UCLA patrons via Page and Pickup, and Arts Course Reserves materials will be housed in Powell Library. For more information, see our temporary collections access and services page. Please contact us at AskUs@library.ucla.edu with questions.
Located on the entry level floor, the Circulation Desk provides assistance with lending and returns of materials, recalls and fines, library cards, course reserves, laptop checkout, Cage collection paging, and general information.
Reference Reading Area
Located on the entry level floor next to the Arts Library Reference collection, the reading area contains several group tables for study and use of reference materials. Although relatively quiet, this area is adjacent to other service areas and patrons should expect some ambient noise.
Quiet Study Reading Room
Located on the 5th floor, the reading room is reserved for quiet study. It contains individual study carrels, tables, and different types of seating.
Audiovisual Viewing Station
Located behind the Library's circulation desk, the viewing station includes a Multi Region Free Zone Blu-ray DVD player, a VHS player (NTSC), viewing screen, and headphones. Access does not require an appointment, and can be requested at the Arts Library circulation desk.
