UC Center Library
Additional evening and weekend opening hours for the library will be announced prior to exams.
The UC Program in French and European Studies maintains a small reference collection of over a thousand books in English on French Studies (History, Literature, Visual Culture, Political Science, dictionaries, and reference works).
Students in the UC Center Program are able to check out books for 3 day periods. For these students, reserve materials (Course Readers and copies of required and recommended books) also will be available for checkout. A fine of 1 euro per day, payable to ACCENT, will be imposed for late returns. The fine for lost or badly damaged books is 25 euros. Faculty teaching in the UC Center Program may check out books (but not reserve materials) for one week. Students from other UC programs may use the library during operating hours, but cannot check out books except with the explicit permission of the director. Check-out must be done, on computer, by the Center Administrator or Graduate Tutor on duty. Students are not required to leave an ID, but will be subjected to the fines listed above.
Students may perform searches of the collection using the 3 workstations at the center.
Electronic Resources and Online Access
Electronic resource pages are available for courses taught in the Program in French and European Studies at the UC Center. All UC Study Center students are encouraged to make use of more general electronic resources available for consultation (both on the web and through the California Digital Library). At the UC Study Center, three dedicated research terminals are configured as proxy servers with access to the CDL. Individual PCs and Macs can also be configured for use with the proxy server.
