The Education Psychology Library has a collection of over 175,000 titles and over 900 journals, both online and in print. It is designed to meet the needs of students and faculty in the Graduate School of Education and the Psychology Department, as well as scholars interested in research in education and the behavioral sciences. The Education Psychology Library is an open stack library, and borrowers are welcome to browse. Books and bound journals are shelved in the stacks according to the Library of Congress classification system. All unbound journals are shelved alphabetically by title in the recent periodicals section at the north end of the library. If you wish to check out materials, bring them to the Circulation Desk along with your UCB identification.

Online journals, books, databases, and resources can be found via the Education Psychology Library website. To access materials when not on campus, patrons will need to configure personal computers via the Proxy.

Children's Literature Collection. The Children's Literature collection is a selective, academic collection originally begun to support courses in children's literature and elementary/secondary school curricula for the Graduate School of Education. The collection emphasizes K-8, primarily illustrated and picture books, some with no text at all. Although changes in the GSE curriculum no longer compel us to collect children's materials at the same intensity, endowments allow us to add to our collection with high quality illustrated books, award-winning books, multi-cultural books, books that deal with children in challenging life situations, significant editions or translations of folklore/folktales and classics, and selected high quality books from foreign publishers.

In 2004, the Jack A. Graves Early Readers Collection of over 100 early American readers and primers was generously donated to the Library as a special collection. The readers can be viewed in the library only.

The Social Welfare Library joined with the Education Psychology Library in 2008 and in 2014 became the Social Research Library. For information on that collection, see the Social Research Library website.
