The Bioscience Library serves the following academic units:
Staff at the Bioscience Library offer collections and services that support the teaching and research missions of these departments. We collect books, journals, and other materials, both online and in print, in these subject areas. We provide instruction in the use of library resources to classes and on a drop-in basis as well as individualized help with library research at the reference desk or by appointment. We also offer PCs for library and internet research, a photocopy center (including scanners), and individual or group study spaces.View a Floor Plan of the Library

All of these resources can be accessed via any on-campus computer. However, some are not available to the general public off-campus because UC Berkeley pays subscription fees for access.
If you're a UC Berkeley student working from an off-campus computer or mobile device, you can access online library resources in two different ways:
Use OskiCat to find book and journal titles in libraries on the UCB campus (including the Bioscience Library). You can also use OskiCat to renew your books online, manage your library account, and find materials on course reserve.
