Connecting from off campus: If you are not on campus, use EZProxy or the VPN (VPN users: choose Library Access – Full Tunnel rather than the default Split Tunnel) to authenticate yourself as a Berkeley student, faculty, or staff to access online books, journals, databases, and other resources.
If a desired article, book, chapter, etc. is not available as a full-text version online, Berkeley students, faculty, and staff can place a request to our Interlibrary Borrowing Service. If the Library is closed due to unforeseen circumstances, we will update you about our ability to provide this to you via email.
24/7 chat reference help is available; start here; click "Chat Now" at the top right.
