The current University of California San Diego Library is housed primarily in the Geisel Library, which was built in the 1960s and renamed in 1995 after Thedor Geisel, most commonly known as Dr. Seuss. The mission of the library is to support the students, faculty, and staff of UCSD, as well as advanced research.
Due to recent organizational restructuring, the UCSD Library no longer has separate, discipline-based branch libraries, and has moved the majority of its collections, including the East Asia Collection, into the Geisel Library.
East Asia Collection size: as of January 2014
The East Asia Collection focuses primarily on literature, history, sociology, linguistics, and philosophy.

The University of California San Diego Library hosts hundreds of databases for students, faculty, and staff to access for support and general research. Organized by subject, the master list of databases can be found here. Under the subject heading East Asian Studies, 37 databases are listed for use at UCSD.
A primer for the Japan Studies resources available to UCSD students, faculty, and staff, this guide covers many of the databases available through UCSD, as well as general research methods for those interested in Japanese studies.
Outside users are allowed to access the materials in-house freely. A borrowing card may be purchased at the circulation desk of the University Library for those interested in borrowing on-site materials. For more information, please see the University Library Borrowing webpage.
Most of the e-journals and databases provided by the University of California San Diego Library are available for off-campus access only to UCSD faculty, staff, and students. Access can be gained for these users through a Proxy server, or through one of two options for VPN connection. More information can be found at the UCSD Library Remote Access webpage.
