To access UCB Library resources from off campus, configure your machine using one of two simple methods (Proxy Server is the quickest and easiest):
After you make a one-time change in your web browser settings, the proxy server will ask you to log in with a CalNet ID when you click on the link to a licensed resource. See the setup instructions, FAQ, and Troubleshooting pages to configure your browser. Follow these steps to check your proxy configuration.
OskiCat is the catalog for UC Berkeley and includes all libraries on campus. Start with a keyword search, and then use subject headings for additional searching. The records will tell you the call number and location (library) for each book.

A keyword searchable collection of engineering handbooks and textbooks from CRC Press, a major science and engineering publisher. The collection is also browsable, and includes a category on nanoscience/nanotechnology.
Many of our handbooks and encyclopedias are available online. See our ebooks page for more encyclopedias and handbooks.
Journal articles and conference papers are the primary means of disseminating research in engineering. Use these article databases to find journal articles and conference papers relevant to your research.
Conference proceedings and papers may be published in various ways: as separate, one-time publications; as serials; or as special issues in journals. Sometimes only the abstract is published; sometimes the paper may be obtained only by contacting the author or society; sometimes the full text is on the web. Occasionally the papers are never published but may be cited by authors who attended the meetings. As a result of these variations, locating conference proceedings can be complicated.
If you're having trouble finding a conference paper, consult our How to Find Conference Proceedings guide, or contact us at the Engineering Library.
Browse research journals in your field to identify interesting topics.
Find call numbers and locations for print copies by searching the journal titles in OskiCat.

Citation management tools help you manage your research, collect and cite sources, and create bibliographies in a variety of citation styles. Each one has its strengths and weaknesses, but any are easier than doing it by hand!
It's always good to double check the formatting -- sometimes the software doesn't get it quite right.
