Welcome to the Ethnic Studies Library Guide to Online Resources! This guide will give an overview of online resources available through UC Berkeley and open-access resources for research. This guide was specifically designed to support the campus community during campus closures related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Ethnic Studies Library is reopening to the public on August 25, 2021. Check our website for more information.
Please refer back to this guide as it will be continuously updated.
There are dozens of library guides available online that can help guide you to the recommended databases and resources in every subject specialty.

Don't hesitate to reach out to a librarian for help by e-mailing them or scheduling a Calendly appointment which can be held remotely. Please note that phone numbers will not work at this time as they are for the offices and the campus is closed.
Starting today (April 2), UC Berkeley students, faculty, and staff are able to take advantage of HathiTrust’s Emergency Temporary Access Service, a boon to the campus community during this unprecedented time. The service provides access to digital versions of millions of the physical volumes held by libraries across the 10-campus University of California system — plus UC’s two expansive off-site library storage facilities — helping the Library continue to serve its mission of teaching and learning even during the COVID-19 pandemic and the cascade of disruptions that have followed.
