Information Studies: MIDS & MICS

A guide to information studies at UC Berkeley.

Accessing Library Resources from Off-Campus

Remote students, faculty and staff with UCB credentials can access online Library resources via links on any library site (EZproxy) or the campus VPN.

Beginning Fall 2017, off-campus users will be prompted to login via CalNet for online resources that are linked from library sites, including OskiCat or library guides. You can install an EZproxy bookmarklet in your browser to jump to the login site when you encounter a licensed library resources via Google or the open web.

VPN (Virtual Private Network) 
Install the VPN client software on your computer. Open and connect to the "Library VPN" to establish a secure connection with the campus network each time you want to access any library-licensed resources.


MIDS and MICS students have the same Library privileges as on-campus students, though print materials can only be checked out in person. Our vast online collections are accessible to all students via EZProxy or the campus VPN (see above). 

Please see Best Bets and Articles & eBooks on this guide for more information about our online resources.
