Where's the PDF?
Once you've searched an index to find articles, you may need to use UC-eLinks to link to a PDF or html file if the full text is not immediately available. Each database is a bit different, but a good rule of thumb is this: when you see the UC-eLinks icon, click on it to view your article access options, which can range from full text to a call number to an Interlibrary Loan request:

Find Electronic Journals
Find out which bioengineering journals titles we have online by using our E-journals A-Z database.
Advanced search is best to find articles by title, journal, author, and date range.
Click on the downward arrow at the right of the search box to see the advanced search page.
Lists journal articles, books, preprints, and technical reports in many subject areas (though more specialized article databases may cover any given field more completely). Can be used with UC-eLinks to access the full text of many articles.
Request journal articles and conference papers that you need in a hurry but that are not available in the UC Berkeley Libraries (including NRLF).
UCB faculty, graduate students, post docs, and research staff in the College of Chemistry, the College of Engineering, and the Departments of Astronomy, Earth & Planetary Science, Geography, Mathematics, Physics, and Statistics are eligible.
