Search to find books, e-books, journals, conference proceedings, and other materials at most UC Berkeley Libraries. Request book chapters and journal articles to be scanned from materials in storage (NRLF), and print books and journal volumes to be delivered to the library of your choice. Renew your books online.
Search within the full text of scanned books. Use the "Find in a library" link to see if e-book or print versions are held by UC Berkeley.
Searches the full text of books and many journal runs on many subjects, including some from the University of California libraries. The full text of a book can be displayed only if the book is out of copyright (generally, published before 1923).
Graduate dissertations and theses from North American and European schools and universities. Full text of most dissertations added since 1997. Search by: topic, advisor, department, and school, including UC Berkeley.
Indexes graduate dissertations from over 1,000 North American, and selected European, graduate schools and universities. Dissertations published since 1980, and master's theses since 1988, include brief abstracts written by the authors. Offers full text of most of the dissertations added since 1997 . It is possible to search a subset of dissertations produced by UC students by going to Dissertations and Theses @ University of California (available in full text).

Provides access to dozens of current medical textbooks in numerous specialty areas, procedural and other videos, a differential diagnosis tool, practice guidelines, cases, patient education materials, and more.
A comprehensive overview of the occurrence, metabolism, and applications of all important biopolymer classes
This reference work treats processes for biotechnological production, isolation from organisms and modification, material properties and technical uses in areas such as chemical and food industries, medicine, pharmacy, and materials science.
Featuring relatively short entries on genetics topics written by experts in that topic, Brenner's Encyclopedia of Genetics provides an effective way to learn about any aspect of genetics, from Abortive Transduction to Zygotes.
The work provides short entries that briefly define key terms, and a guide to additional reading and relevant websites for further study. Many of the entries include figures to explain difficult concepts. Key terms in related areas such as biochemistry, cell, and molecular biology are also included, and there are entries that describe historical figures in genetics, providing insights into their careers and discoveries.
Includes definitions of terms from bioinformatics, biophysics, cell biology, chemistry, computational biology, genetics, immunology, mathematics, microbiology, molecular biology, pharmacology, systems biology, toxicology, and related fields.
More than 300 overview articles in 20 different subject areas including the economics of biodiversity, evolution, population issues, and theories of biodiversity.
A comprehensive survey of biodiversity across taxonomic groups and ecological regions. Covers topics such as agriculture, fisheries, forests, land-use patterns, population trends, overexploitation, climate change, and threatened, endangered and invasive species.
Covers all areas of neurological sciences through over 1,000 entries focused on a wide variety of topics in neurology, neurosurgery, psychiatry, and other related areas of neuroscience.
The contributing authors represent all aspects of neurology from many viewpoints and disciplines to provide a complete overview of the field. Entries are designed to be understandable without detailed background knowledge in the subject matter, and cross-referencing and suggested further reading lead the reader from a basic knowledge of the subject to more advanced understanding. The easy-to-use 'encyclopedic-dictionary' format of the Encyclopedia of the Neurological Sciences, Second Edition features alphabetic entries, extensive cross-referencing, and a thorough index for quick reference.
Provides full text, comprehensive overviews on animal systematics and morphology as well as extensive coverage of physiology, behaviour, ecology and applied aspects of zoological research. Updated Frequently. [1923--]
Video lectures by leading experts on subjects including biochemistry, cancer, cell biology, genetics & epigenetics, infectious diseases, metabolism & nutrition, microbiology, neuroscience and more.
Additional topics include agriculture & environmental sciences, clinical medicine, immunology, methods, omics & systems biology, pharmaceutical sciences, and reproduction & development. Lecture slides and full text transcripts are available.
Covers the genes and genetic mechanisms underlying inherited human disease. Note: Limited simultaneous users. Please try again later if refused.
The online version of Metabolic and Molecular Bases of Inherited Disease, OMMBID is regularly updated with new information on the metabolic and molecular underpinnings of inherited diseases, as well as updates on pathophysiology and treatment.
A standard reference in the pathology and molecular biology of human disease.
Pathobiology of Human Disease bridges traditional morphologic and clinical pathology, molecular pathology, and the underlying basic science fields of cell biology, genetics, and molecular biology, which have opened up a new era of research in pathology and underlie the molecular basis of human disease. Each article provides a comprehensive overview of the selected topic to inform a broad spectrum of readers from research professionals to advanced undergraduate students.
