- Melvyl lets you search for items at UC Berkeley, other UC campuses, and libraries worldwide.
- Use the Request button in the catalog to borrow items not owned by UC Berkeley.
- Melvyl includes millions of licensed journal articles. As a result, some off-campus users will encounter login prompts when starting a search in Melvyl.
- Anyone can use Melvyl as a UC-wide and worldwide library catalog, but the licensed items are available only to those with UC Berkeley access privileges.
See the Melvyl Quick Reference PDF for more details.
