About us

We are the largest library on campus and an ideal spot for you to find a group study space or quiet spot to read, work, and recharge. While we officially house the humanities and social sciences collections, we offer a range of resources and librarians to help you with your studies. Green Library is also home to the Media & Microtext Center, where you can explore our film and video game collection, and to the Reference Desk, where you can speak with a librarian about finding resources or getting started on your research.

Within Green Library you can also find the following library spaces: Special Collections, the Media & Microtext Center, the David Rumsey Map Center, Software and Services for Data Science, and the Silicon Valley Archives
