About UC Library Search

UC Library Search is the University of California's library discovery and borrowing system and the place to start for finding library collections at Berkeley, other UCs, and beyond. 

Use it to find:

  • UC Berkeley Library collections (the Law Library is one of a few exceptions).
  • Other UC campus library collections.
  • Non-UC articles, books, media, special collections, and more.

Access it from The Library's homepage. (At prompt, sign in  to enable search results and features.)
