A guide to research resources on mathematical statistics 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 statistics. Use these to get background information, find books, and find articles:

  • MathSciNet - to find scholarly articles and more in mathematics, probability, and statistics
  • Wiley StatsRef - to find background information on statistics 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

To access UCB Library resources from off campus, configure your machine using one of two simple methods (Proxy Server is the quickest and easiest):

Proxy Server 
After you make a one-time change in your web browser settings, the proxy server will ask you to log in with a CalNet ID when you click on the link to a licensed resource. See the setup instructions, FAQ, and Troubleshooting pages to configure your browser.  Follow these steps to check your proxy configuration.

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.
