Master of Engineering: Getting started

Introduction

This research guide for Master of Engineering students is designed to help you find resources for your capstone projects. It is by no means an exhaustive list of everything the library has available. Due to the specialized nature of each group's projects, we recommend that groups make appointments with librarians if they are not finding what they need with the resources listed.

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.
