Moffitt Library is opening Aug. 22. Other libraries will have updated services and hours. Learn more.
While the UC Berkeley Library provides access to thousands of online resources (ejournals, ebooks, databases, etc.) most of them are only available to authorized users (current faculty, students and staff and, in most cases, on-site visitors).
Without the right set up that allows you to authenticate, you will be locked out of these resources.
There are two ways to connect to library resources from off-campus.
Use UC Library Search and other library websites to look up licensed (subscribed) resources. Links listed on these sites prompt users to login with CalNet.
To access library resources found via non-UCB sites such as Google, Google Scholar, email links, Twitter, etc, 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.
