On March 16, UC announced an agreement with Elsevier. We have not had access to new content in Elsevier journals since January 2019. The deal, which starts April 1, re-establishes access to articles published in Elsevier journals the libraries subscribed to before, plus additional journals. In addition, the four-year deal will also provide for open access publishing of UC research in nearly 2,300 Elsevier journals from day one.
Off-campus access is limited to current UCB faculty, staff and students. Choose one of the following methods:
Library Proxy (aka EZproxy)
When you click on a link to an article, database, etc., (from a library web page) you will be prompted to authenticate via CalNet.
If you click on an article (etc.) link found via a search engine or a non-UCB Library webpage, you will need to use a bookmarklet to access the licensed resource.
Virtual Private Network (VPN)
Download and install the VPN client to allow access the UC Berkeley licensed resources.
Make sure you select Library Access - Full Tunnel VPN when you log on
JoVE Core Molecular Biology, a video textbook, is now available to UC Berkeley.

There are 1000s of videos available to us.
