Use Melvyl to locate materials at other campuses in the UC system, or worldwide, and also to

  • request materials from another library if we don't own it
  • find articles from some article databases
  • easily format a citation for copying into a bibliography
  • Melvyl will also show you the location and availablity of items that we own.


Oskicat Tips

  • Search for topics using a keyword search, e.g., china secondary education
  • Limit results by language (Modify search)
  • You can browse topics using the Subject links.
  • Use My Oskicat to view your library account and renew books
  • Use the Request button to:
    • page books in NRLF and
    • recall books that are checked out
  • Be persistent!
