You can still access the UC Berkeley Library’s services and resources during the closure. Here’s how.

Forestry: Articles

A guide to research resources in Forestry

Top Research Databases

Use one or more of these databases to find articles, conference proceedings, reports, and other materials relevant to research in Forestry. CAB Abstracts, Agricultural & Environmental Science, and BIOSIS are good bets for Forestry topics.

Other Databases

In addition the Top Research Databases for Forestry, UCB researchers have access to many more databases that cover a variety of subject areas. The Library's list of Databases by Subject can help you find an appropriate database, or feel free to ask your librarian.

Where's the PDF?

Once you've searched a database to find articles, use UC-eLinks to link to a PDF or html file if the full text is not immediately available. Each database is a bit different, but a general rule is: when you see  (UC-eLinks icon), click on it to view your article access options, which can range from online full text, to checking OskiCat for print, to an Interlibrary Loan request:

You can also use Citation Linker to find full text from a full or partial citation.

For 2019-present Elsevier journal articles (as well as articles in other journals that the Library does not have subscriptions for), alternative access methods include searching for open access copies using browser plugins like Unpaywall and Open Access Button.
