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.

Catalogs and Search Engines

Find a book that matches your topic and go to the call number range to browse. Check the references and bibliography.

Start Your Search.  Books, ebooks, journal articles, JSTOR, and other content rolled into one integrated library platform. 

Google Scholar. Functions as both a key word database for articles and books. On campus it automatically connects to select licensed content held by the libraries.

Oskicat. UC Berkeley libraries catalog:  books, e-books, journal and e-journal titles, films and videos, maps, archival materials, and more. See also the Quick Guide to Oskicat and Oskicat Tutorial.

Google Books. Search the text of books, view previews, and read full text of out-of-copyright books. Use the "find in a Library" link to locate the book at UC Berkeley.

Melvyl. Catalog for all UC Campus libraries, including selected libraries on campus not in Oskicat, e.g. the Law Library.
