Eligibility is governed by our license agreements with the vendors of electronic resources. These typically stipulate that the Library can permit off-campus access to authorized users only. "Authorized users" are:

  • Current UC Berkeley students, faculty, and staff
  • Continuing UC Berkeley students who, although unregistered, are in good standing and working towards a degree
  • UC Berkeley emeritus professors and retired academic staff
  • UCOP (University of California Office of the President) staff with valid UC Berkeley library cards
  • UC Extension students with valid UC Berkeley library cards (must be a California resident and apply for the card in person)
  • UC Extension faculty with valid UC Berkeley library cards (for details, contact the Privileges Desk)
  • Visiting scholars and post-doctoral fellows who are registered with the Visiting Scholars and Postdoc Affairs office.

Off-campus access via the proxy server is not available to alumni, to former employees, to retired non-academic staff, to persons unofficially or only loosely affiliated with UC Berkeley, to associates of other University of California campuses, to those who have purchased a UC Berkeley Library Card, or to the public at large. If you have questions concerning your eligibility for Library services, please contact the Privileges Desk in Doe Library (510-642-3403).

However, anyone may come into the Library and use these resources through the "Research Access" option on our public computers.
