Use these catalogs to find books and other items in a particular library or group of libraries. Each catalog provides its own special services to UC Berkeley faculty, staff, and students.
Melvyl is a collaboration between the UC Libraries and the Online Computer Library Center (OCLC). Holdings from all ten UC campuses are included. UC Berkeley faculty, students, staff, and other UC Berkeley library cardholders may use the Request function in Melvyl to request materials from other UC campuses and from SRLF (Southern Regional Library Facility).
Science and Engineering researchers should be aware that Melvyl does not include holdings from affiliated libraries like the Institute of Transportation Studies Library, Water Resources Center Archives, Earthquake Engineering Resource Center, or the Law Library. Many electronic books are also unavailable in Melvyl.
