UC Berkeley’s library buildings are open. Here’s what you need to know.

OOMPH Library Resources: PHW 206 Public Health Aspects of Maternal and Child Nutrition: Need Help?

Access to Online Library Resources & Help

Set up off-campus access to library resources (databases, online journals, etc.) using the Library proxy or Library VPN
(This page has both set-up and troubleshooting information)

UCB Wi-Fi Options include Eduroam and CalVisitor:
Eduroam, the preferred network for UCB, allows you to access UC Berkeley online resources both at UCB, and while at participating institutions worldwide.
Eduroam requires you to set a WiFi Key.
CalVisitor, UCB's public WiFi network, requires CalNet authentication each time you try to access a licensed resource.

Need help with the above? Contact Student Tech Services at 510-642-4357 or sts-help@berkeley.edu or in person, or contact the Public Health Librarian.
