Connect from off campus

To access UC Berkeley Library e-journals, e-books, databases, and other subscription resources from off-campus or on wifi networks other than eduroam, UC Berkeley students, faculty and staff can use the following:

WiFi options

When on campus, use the eduroam network to access library resources such as journals, e-books, and databases:

Note: The Berkeley-Visitor network on the UCB campus provides internet access, but blocks users from UCB-licensed resources such as journals, e-books, and databases. To access these resources when on campus, switch to the eduroam wifi network instead.

Computers in the library

On campus without a laptop?

Access library-licensed databases, journals, ebooks, and other resources using a library computer:

  • Full access computers: UC Berkeley students, faculty and staff can log on to a full access computer with a CalNet ID and passphrase. Full access computers provide unrestricted access to the internet and to library-licensed resources such as catalogs, article databases, journals and ebooks.
  • Research access computers: Members of the public without a CalNet ID can use research access computers to access library catalogs, article databases, and other licensed resources. Access to some sites (such as social media) is not available.
