Molecular and Cell Biology: Connecting

How to find articles, books, conference proceedings, dissertations, protocols, data and citation management tools, and other resources in Molecular and Cell Biology.

Connecting from off campus

To access electronic journals, books, and other subscription resources from off-campus, please use one of the following:

Proxy Server
The proxy server is a computer on campus that will re-route your requests for licensed resources after authenticating you as a Berkeley student, faculty or staff member. You must configure your web browser in order to use it.
 
EZProxy (coming by Fall 2018): no proxy server required, but you must access resources through a library link (not Google!).
 
Virtual Private Network (VPN)
The VPN is a software program that will establish a "tunnel" to our campus network, allowing you to access a broader variety of licensed resources.

WiFi options

AirBears2
The UCB wireless network available in almost every building on campus; click on the link for more information about configuring the AirBears2 network on your device.

eduroam
Provides internet access on the UCB campus and when visiting dozens of other participating institutions. Use with the proxy server to access UC Berkeley-licensed journals, e-books and databases. Click on the link for more information about configuring the eduroam network on your device.

Note: The CalVisitor network on the UCB campus provides internet access, but blocks users from UCB-licensed resources such as journals, e-books, and databases. If you have trouble accessing these resources when on campus, check to make sure that you are not logged in to CalVisitor.
