Use Melvyl to locate materials at other campuses in the UC system, or worldwide, and also to:
- request materials from another library if we don't own it
- find articles from some article databases
- easily format a citation for copying into a bibliography
- Melvyl will also show you the location and availability of items that we own.
Google Books can be useful for finding related books and for searching the full-text of a book.
- Search for your topic by using the keyword search: e.g.- "femisist performance art" or "Swoon street art"
- Use an asterisk as a wildcard: paint* finds paint, paints, painter, painting, etc..
- Limit results by language (Modify search)
