Ask a Librarian 24/7 Chat

You can type your question directly into this chat window to chat with a librarian. Your question may be answered by a reference librarian from Berkeley, from another UC campus, or another academic library elsewhere in the US.  We share information about our libraries to make sure you get good answers.

If the librarian can't answer you well enough, your question will be referred to a Berkeley librarian for follow-up.

Want to meet?

If you would like to schedule a Zoom appointment with me, use https://calendly.com/dorner to find a time and the appointment will be put on my calendar. No need to email me first asking for a meeting! Once I see the notification, I'll schedule a Zoom meeting and send you the information.

You can also look for me in Google Hangouts - use this email to find me: jdorner@library.berkeley.edu.

 

Library Proxy

  • You no longer need to configure a browser to use the Library Proxy.
  • When you click on a resource link found in OskiCat, via "Start your search" on the Library home page, Databases A-Z or eJournals (UC eLinks), you will be prompted to authenticate. You may authenticate via CalNet, or via your PIN / Cal 1 card number.
  • When you click on a resource link found via a search engine or a non-UCB Library webpage, you will need to use a bookmarklet to access the licensed resource.
