UC Berkeley Library

Connect from off campus

Content section: 

If you connect to the Internet through the UC Berkeley network (in a campus office, dorm, etc. or via AirBears2), you should be able to access all library resources. 

If you connect to the Internet through CalVisitor, you will be prompted to authenticate in order to access licensed library resources. You may also use the campus VPN client to access licensed library resources.

If you are off campus, UC Berkeley students, faculty and staff may access UCB Only materials via:

  • Library Proxy
    • You no longer need to configure a browser to use the Library Proxy.
    • When you click on a resource link found in OskiCat, via "Start your search" on the Library home page, Databases A-Z or eJournals (UC eLinks), you will be prompted to authenticate. You may authenticate via CalNet, or via your PIN / Cal 1 card number.
    • When you click on a resource link found via a search engine or a non-UCB Library webpage, you will need to use a bookmarklet to access the licensed resource.
