You can still access the UC Berkeley Library’s services and resources during the closure. Here’s how.

Using the Library during COVID-19

During the pandemic, many of our services are being offered in new ways. To find the latest information on course reserves, book returns, 24/7 online help, and more, visit our COVID-19 portal, which provides more up-to-date information than the text below.

Access Policy

Content section: 

Graduate Services is a collection and study space reserved for UC Berkeley faculty, staff, graduate students, and visiting scholars. Access to Graduate Services is granted to all UC Berkeley faculty, staff, graduate students, and visiting scholars with the appropriate UC Berkeley identification card. This identification should be shown upon entering Graduate Services. Others may use or copy on-site materials not available elsewhere in the Library system. To request the use of specific material only available in Graduate Services please provide the staff at the Graduate Services Desk with the catalog citation upon entering. Materials on course reserve in Graduate Services can be checked out only by UC Berkeley faculty, staff, graduate students, and visiting scholars, though they can be looked at and copied in Graduate Services by patrons with a UCB library account in good standing.
