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

Political Economy: Introduction

The Library and COVID-19

Welcome to the UC Berkeley Library Economics Research Guide. We are here to provide services you can access remotely.  Please see the University Library COVID-19 Portal for UC Berkeley Library Users. The Library is maintaining a list of COVID-19 e-Resources available to the UCB community, including the ​HathiTrust Emergency Temporary Access Service (ETAS).

Please feel free to contact me or another subject librarian for a virtual consultation. If you need a book but can't find an electronic version feel free to request eBook purchases. You can also order digital articles through interlibrary loan.
