Off-campus Access to Library Resources

There are two ways to connect to library resources from off-campus using the new library proxy:

  1. Links to online resources on library websites, such as UC Library Search, will allow you to login with CalNet directly.
  2. To access library resources found via non-UCB sites, such as Google or Google Scholar, you can add the EZproxy bookmarklet to your browser. Then, whenever you land on a licensed library resource, select your EZproxy bookmarklet to enable CalNet login.

More information is on the EZproxy guide.

The campus VPN provides an alternate method for off-campus access.

Library Proxy

  • You no longer need to configure a browser to use the Library Proxy.
  • When you click on a resource link found in UC Library Search, Databases A-Z or eJournals (UC eLinks), you will be prompted to authenticate. You may authenticate via CalNet, or via your PIN / Cal 1 card number.
  • When you click on a resource link found via a search engine or a non-UCB Library webpage, you will need to use a bookmarklet to access the licensed resource.

Printing and Scanning in the Libraries

Scanning

All UC Berkeley libraries have at least one scanning station. From the scanners you can:

  • save documents to a USB drive (Moffitt Copy Center sells USB drives)
  • upload documents to a cloud service (Google Drive, Box, OneDrive or DropBox)
  • email documents to bMail, Gmail, Yahoo! Mail or Microsoft Live accounts such as Outlook.com and Hotmail
  • send documents to library printers 

All of the scanning services are free, except for printing scanned documents (see below)

  • Printing in the libraries costs 8 cents per page for black & white, or 60 cents per page for color.
    • UC Berkeley students, faculty and staff pay with their Cal 1 Card.
