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

Construction and Design Guide: Home

Find Books, Journal Titles, and More

Use OskiCat or Melvyl to find books or journal titles (not articles) by checking if UCB or UC has the journal. If UCB does not have it, you can request the book/article though the request feature in Melvyl.  

 

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 OskiCat, 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.

Articles Indexes

Use INDEXES on your topic to find articles. Some online indexes/databases include the full text of articles or use UC eLinks to find the item. To locate the print journal; search the Library's catalogs by  journal title to find the shelving location and call number for the journal.

More indexes are listed in these guides:
