Rhetoric: About

About the Rhetoric Collection

Rhetoric materials are collected in support of the research and teaching needs of those in the Rhetoric Department and in related interdisciplinary fields. Rhetoric at Berkeley is an interdisciplinary program that explores the theoretical, historical and cultural dimensions of discourse in all of its forms. 


A-Z Databases

A-Z Databases is a directory of the Library's databases and other online resources.  It is searchable by subject (e.g. Philosophy), database type (e.g. Images), as well as being searchable by keyword (e.g. Theatre in Video).  It is a useful tool to help you choose the right resources for your particular research needs.


To find books, journals and other media owned by the UC Berkeley Library search Berkeley's OskiCat or the UC-wide MELVYL catalog.

Connecting From Off Campus

UC Berkeley students, faculty and staff can access Library resources from off campus using one of two simple methods:

Proxy Server
After you make a one-time change in your web browser settings, the proxy server will ask you to log in with a CalNet ID or Library PIN when you click on the link to a licensed resource. See the setup instructions, FAQ, and Troubleshooting pages to configure your browser.

VPN (Virtual Private Network)
After you install and run the VPN "client" software on your computer, you can log in with a CalNet ID to establish a secure connection with the campus network.
