You can still access the UC Berkeley Library's services and resources. Here's how.

Accessing Library Resources During COVID-19

Campus Libraries for EECS

Campus libraries that have materials related to electrical engineering and computer science include:

Collections in these libraries can be discovered by searching the OskiCat catalog.

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. The average wait for an ILL request is one week but items borrowed from out-of-state take longer to arrive.

To make an interlibrary loan request for a book, use the Request button in Melvyl, which searches many libraries worldwide. A copy will be delivered to the campus library of your choice for pick up.

Journal Articles & Conference Papers
For journal articles and conference papers, it is best to make an order through the Interlibrary Borrowing Service request form. We will email you a PDF copy of the paper. 

Off-campus Access

We offer two ways to access UCB licensed library resources from off-campus:

When accessing a library licensed resource via links found on OskiCat, Start your Search, or our Databases A-Z list, you will be prompted to authenticate via CalNet or via your PIN / Cal 1 card number. If you normally search via non-licensed UCB resources (such as Google Scholar), you may need to install our bookmarklet in order to authenticate.
Note: EZProxy will replace the library's previous proxy solution. More information on EZProxy can be found on our EZProxy guide

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.
