Focused on discovery and collaboration, a revitalized Moffitt Library will be dedicated to supporting undergraduate research.
Moffitt Library serves as a gateway for many Berkeley undergraduates, introducing them to the scholarly community. Yet the modes of scholarship for students have dramatically changed over the past decades, and the library must evolve to meet these new opportunities and demands. Flexible, collaborative, technology-rich spaces are required to support the current learning and research needs of our undergraduates.
The mission of a public university like Cal blends excellence and accessibility. In fact, fully one-third of incoming students are from low-income families, and one-third come from families in which neither parent has a four-year college degree. In this setting it is essential to offer a library that inspires undergraduates in developing their own research abilities and curiosity.
Moffitt Library Revitalization
Our goal is to serve the extraordinarily diverse, talented students at Cal - the young scholars who will be helping to create the world of tomorrow.
