Pro tip! When you find a good article, click UC e-links to get the online PDF. If Berkeley doesn't have that journal, use "interlibrary loan" to request that we borrow it from another library.

Also! If you find a great article, find its references in our Citation Linker... or search for the title in Google Scholar Free or open access and click "cited by" to see newer articles that build on the one you found!
