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).

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.
