UC Berkeley faculty, students, and staff may connect to library resources from off-campus in two ways.
When accessing a library licensed resource via links found on OskiCat, Start your Search, or our Databases A-Z list, you will be prompted to authenticate via CalNet or via your PIN / Cal 1 card number. If you normally search via non-licensed UCB resources (such as Google Scholar), you may need to install our bookmarklet in order to authenticate.
Note: EZProxy will replace the library's previous proxy solution. More information on EZProxy can be found on our EZProxy guide.

Each database isa 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:

For historical local and major national newspapers and media, visit the Newspapers and Microforms room in the basement of Doe Library.
Google News also contains a wide range of national and local newspapers. Remember: be specific when searching on your topic and take advantage of the limiting features.
