Getting Material from NRLF

A large part of the library's collection is stored off campus in an environmentally secure building called the Northern Regional Library Facility [NRLF].

Submit online requests via the REQUEST button in OskiCat to borrow material shelved at NRLF. To receive electronic or paper copies of book chapters or journal articles, submit an online request via the "Request an article from NRLF (photocopy or web delivery)" link that appears in eligible titles in OskiCat. Staff at public service desks of any campus library can assist you with further questions. 

EXCEPTION:  Materials belonging to Bancroft Library MUST be requested via their online form

Off-campus Access to Library Resources

Before you can access Library resources from off campus make sure you have configured your computer with proxy server settings.

After you make a one-time change in your web browser settings, the proxy server will ask you to log in with a CalNet ID or Library PIN when you click on the link to a licensed resource.

Requesting Materials from Other Libraries

If UCB does not own the item you need, we will borrow it for you from another library, if possible.  We need a specific citation (example, for books - title, author, date of publication, publisher; for articles, title, author, journal/publication title, date, page numbers).

If you are in MELVYL and find the record for an item UCB doesn't own, click on the "Request" button to initiate the request.

If the item isn't owned by another UC, pull down the "Libraries to search" menu in MELVYL to "Libraries Worldwide" and re-try the search.  If you find the item, click on the "Request" button to initiate the request.

If you are not using MELVYL, use the online Interlibrary Loan forms to request an item.  Track the progress of your request via "My ILL Requests."
