Help Us Create a New Group Study Room at Shields Library
Shields Library is voted the “Best Place to Study” in The California Aggie’s student survey year after year. And each year, The Aggie notes the “many different rooms and areas to fit everyone’s needs” as a key reason UC Davis students love their library so much.
But no space is as consistently in demand as the handful of Group Study Rooms at Shields Library. In particular, students flock to the two study rooms that have recently been renovated, thanks to donor support, with wifi-enabled flat screens to facilitate teamwork on group projects and class presentations.
While health and safety measures mean that individual study has been the norm this year, we must look ahead with the knowledge that the pandemic will end. And when it does, collaboration and face-to-face group learning will again be an important part of our students’ academic experience.
As the UC Davis student body grows, and group projects become more common as class assignments, the library must adapt to their changing needs — and put every square foot to work.
That’s why, this Give Day, we’re inviting you to help us create a new Group Study Room in Shields Library.
Thanks to the support of donors like you, we are already more than halfway to our goal. Now we need your help to take the effort across the finish line!
