The Walter C. Langsam Library, the central library, contains over 1,000,000 volumes in the social sciences and humanities, as well as over 200,000 volumes in government depository collections of state, federal and international documents. Many library services are housed in Langsam Library, including the Student Technology Resources Center, Multimedia Services, Library Instruction, and general reference services. The Writing Center, the Center for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning (CET&L), and the Faculty Enrichment Center call Langsam home.

The Click & Collect retrieval and pickup service allows UC users to request print library materials in the Library Catalog for pickup at designated locations. Requests made daily Monday-Friday are typically available the next 1-2 business days. Users should wait for an e-mail pickup notice before coming to the library to pick up requested items. There is a limit of 10 items per request/25 a week. Due dates have been automatically set for February 15, 2021. When searching for print materials in the Library Catalog, items with the status of “Held By Library” are available for request. Items from one library location cannot be requested for pickup at another library location. At Langsam Library, requested items are available for pickup on carts in the 4th floor lobby. 

A book drop for the return of materials can be found in the outer lobby of Langsam.
