How to access library resources from off campus

There are several ways to connect to library resources from off-campus.

  1. Go to UC Library SearchDatabases A-Z list, and other library websites to look up licensed (subscribed) resources. Links listed on these sites prompt users to login with CalNet.
  2. To access licensed (subscribed) library resources found via non-UCB sites such as Google, Google Scholar, email links, Twitter, etc, you can add the libproxy bookmarklet to your browser's toolbar. Then, whenever you land on a licensed library resource, click on the libproxy bookmarklet to enable authentication.
  3. You can also download the campus VPN (Virtual Private Network) client to access licensed resources.

Printing and Scanning in the Libraries

All libraries on campus are equipped with "bookscan stations," which allow you to:

  • scan documents and save them to a USB drive, or
  • scan documents and then send them to a printer.  You cannot email a scanned document from a bookscan station.

Scanning to a USB drive is free.  Moffitt Copy Center sells flash drives.

Scanning documents to print is 8 cents a page (color printing: 60 cents a page).picture of open book

In order to send documents to the printer from any of the public computers in the libraries, you must have the following:

  • A document that's on the Web or attached to your email (the public computers in the libraries will not open files from a USB or other drive)
  • A Cal 1 Card, with money loaded onto the debit account (go here to make a deposit to your Cal 1 Card account).  
    This is not the same as meal plan points! Your Cal 1 Card debit account is a separate fund on your card.
