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.
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.
Use the UC-eLinks button when available to link out to the full text of the publication.
If you have a citation, use the UC-eLinks Citation Linker to find the full-text.
Journal Title and Date are required fields. Enter as much information as you have about the publication.
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.
Reference managers help you manage your research, collect and cite sources, & create bibliographies in a variety of citation styles. Compare.
