UC Berkeley Library Computers

Content section: 

Beginning November 2005 the Libraries at the University of California, Berkeley will no longer offer computers with full Internet access to unaffiliated campus visitors. 

  • All UCB students, faculty, and staff who logon with their CalNet ID will get unrestricted access to the Internet.
  • Visitors can logon for "research access," as indicated on the welcome screen when one opens the Web browser.
  • "Research access" includes library catalogs, article databases and other licensed library resources, and all websites in the .edu, .gov, and .org domains. Selected .com sites are enabled.  It does not require an ID or password.

This renewed emphasis on research fulfills The Library’s mission to acquire, organize, interpret and provide access to information and knowledge in support of the Berkeley campus' goal of excellence in instruction, research, and public service.
