On campus wireless access use: Airbears 2: wireless access on campus.
Off-campus access to many resources is limited to current UCB faculty, staff and students.
To access these resources from off-campus, please use one of the following:
The proxy server is a computer on campus that will re-route your requests for licensed resources after authenticating you as a Berkeley student, faculty or staff member. You must configure your web browser in order to use it.
Proxy changes: Recent changes in the proxy server may have affected some users; see the Library's Proxy Server FAQ. iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch proxy server setup instructions.
Virtual Private Network (VPN)
The VPN is a software program that will establish a "tunnel" to our campus network, allowing you to access a broader variety of licensed resources.
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.

Reference managers help you manage your research, collect and cite sources, & create bibliographies in a variety of citation styles. Compare.
Widely used citation managers include:
RefWorks: Free for UC Berkeley users. Web-based manager with direct export integrated into many databases. Organize and share references, and format citations and bibliographies.
Sign up for a RefWorks account.
Getting Started with RefWorks
EndNote: may be purchased from UC Berkeley's Software Central. Good PDF management and annotation tools. Automatically searches for full-text PDFs (if available) for citations. Formats citations and bibliographies. Requires purchase of annual or semi-annual upgrades to remain current.
Zotero: Free plug-in for Firefox and standalone versions for Chrome and Internet Explorer. Automatically extracts metadata from many PDFs and web pages. Permits tagging, notation, and full text searching of your library of resources. Integrates with Word for citation and bibliography formatting, and has a free (but limited) web backup service.Getting Started with Zotero Note: When using software to automatically format your citations, double-check the formatting for correctness.
Mendeley: Free (up to 2GB). Web-based component that syncs with a desktop client. Integrates with Word for citation and bibliography formatting. Includes some social elements that allows for sharing and recommendations.
