Library Services

Berkeley's excellence is founded on its Library. From a collection of one thousand books in 1868 - the year the University of California was established - the Library has grown into one of the world's great research collections, with over ten million volumes.

The Library is ranked as the top public research university library in the country. The main libraries include James K. Moffitt Library, Bancroft Library, the C.V. Starr East Asian Library, Doe Memorial Library, and there are many other subject-specialty libraries.

As an employee of UC Berkeley, you can take advantage of free access to the library collections as well as wonderful programs the Library offers, such as Story Hour in the Library and Lunch Poems.

We offer employment in a variety of Library Services areas, including public service and providing reference, instruction, acquisitions, cataloging, and circulation.
