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.
