Connecting from off campus (Proxy, VPN)

Before you can access UCB Library resources from off campus or via your laptop or other mobile devices, make sure you have configured your computer using one of two simple methods (Proxy Server is the quickest and easiest):

  • 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.

Ask a Librarian 24/7 Chat

 

You can type your question directly into this chat window to chat with a librarian. Your question may be answered by a reference librarian from Berkeley, from another UC campus, or another academic library elsewhere in the US.  We share information about our libraries to make sure you get good answers.

If the librarian can't answer you well enough, your question will be referred to a Berkeley librarian for follow-up.

Have fun chatting!

Research Advisory Service

Research Advisory Service for Cal Undergraduates: Book a 30-minute appointment with a librarian who will help refine and focus research inquiries, identify useful online and print sources, and develop search strategies for humanities and social sciences topics (examples of research topics).

Schedule, view, edit or cancel your appointment online (CalNetID required).

Library Prize for Undergraduate Research

 The Library Prize for Undergraduate Research recognizes excellence in undergraduate research projects that show evidence of significant inquiry using the library, its resources, and collections and learning about the research and information-gathering process itself.

See the prize-winning paper, Cowboys, Indians, and Aliens: White Supremecy in the Klamath Basin, 1826-1946, by 2015 GWS grad Andrea Ikeda.
