Physics and Astronomy Library Resources for Alumni: Welcome

Physics-Astronomy Library Temporary Closure

The Physics-Astronomy Library is temporarily closed through the end of Summer 2022. You are welcome to use these online resources or visit one of our other Campus Libraries until we reopen!

Visit the Physics Astronomy Library

The Physics-Astronomy Library welcomes Cal Physics and Astronomy alumni!

Visit for access to our print collection as well as many of our online resources which are available to alumni through the library's public computers. We offer printing and scanning services as well.

Before visiting, check our UC Library Search for the availability of a publication. Some of our older materials are stored off site.

Alumni access to online library sources

Due to our legal contracts with publishers and information providers, the UC Berkeley Library cannot offer alumni offsite access to our paid online books, journals, and databases.

However, alumni may receive guest access to the majority of subscribed online resources through the computers at the UC Berkeley libraries when you visit campus.
