Why is Melvyl asking me to log in?

A pilot project in Spring 2012 is adding millions of licensed journal articles to Melvyl, the discovery tool of the UC libraries.  As a result, some off-campus users will now encounter login prompts when starting a search in Melvyl.  Anyone can still use Melvyl as a UC-wide and worldwide library catalog, but the licensed items are available only to those with UC Berkeley access privileges.

If you experience differs from what's described above, please use this form to report it, giving details of your situation.
