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 author's name using the author search: Jeunet, Jean-Pierre
  • Search for topics using a keyword search: chukchi and soviet
  • Try variant spellings! Chuckchi vs chukchee
  • Use an asterisk as a wildcard: cannibal* finds cannibal, cannibalism, etc.
  • Limit results by language (Modify search)
  • You can browse topics using the Subject links.
