HIST 101: Early Modern Europe

Where's That Book?

PT9876.22.A6933 L8413 2010 

What is this number?

It's called a 'call number', and every book in the library has a unique one, which is printed on the spine of the book.

The call numbers tell you where the book is shelved, if you know how to read them.

You have the article information. How do you get the article?

Often you need to find a specific article for which you already have the citation.  How do you do it?

  • Google Scholar If you have the proxy server set up, you may be able to link to a pdf or html file of the article
  • Citation Linker This function of UC-eLinks allows you to search for a specific article without knowing which database it may be listed in.  You may have to study your citation to determine if it's an article, a chapter in a book, or something else, in order to use Citation Linker.

Proxy server

To use library databases from off campus you have to set up the proxy server: this changes your browser settings.

  • Different browsers [Firefox, Chrome, Safari...] have different instructions- they are all here.
  • You can set it up on multiple devices
  • You log in with your CalNet ID
  • There's an alternative: the VPN
