Mathematics: Start

A guide to research resources on mathematics topics.

Mathematics Statistics Library

Visit the Mathematics Statistics Library in 100 Evans Hall. Check Mathematics & Statistics Guides and Services for more guides and services.

Starting Points

These resources are good starting points for library research in mathematics. Use these to get background information, find books, and find articles:

  • MathSciNet - to find scholarly articles and more in mathematics
  • MathWorld - to find background information on mathematics topics
  • OskiCat - to find books and more in the UC Berkeley Libraries

Explore this guide for additional resources and tips for finding articles, finding books, and more.

Borrow externally

If Berkeley does not own a publication, you can borrow it from an external library by requesting an interlibrary loan.

This is a free service to Berkeley faculty, staff, and students, and you make an order through the Interlibrary Borrowing Service request form

If it’s a print book, a copy will be delivered to the Doe Library for pick up. For journal articles, we email you a PDF copy of the paper. This service takes 1-2 weeks, sometimes longer.

Off-campus Access

We offer two ways to access UCB licensed library resources from off-campus:

EZProxy 
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

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.
