Off-campus access to library resources

You can access UCB Library resources from off campus or via your laptop or other mobile device using one of two simple methods:

Proxy Server
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. See the setup instructions, FAQ, and Troubleshooting pages to configure your browser.

VPN (Virtual Private Network)
After you install and run the VPN "client" software on your computer, you can log in with a CalNet ID to establish a secure connection with the campus network.

Is it a scholarly source?

Your instructor wants you to use scholarly [or 'peer reviewed'] sources.  What does she mean?

  • Authoritative- written by a recognized expert in the field.  How do you know?  The PhD is one sign; employment by a university is another.
  • Peer reviewed- before publishing, the article was vetted by other scholars in the field. How do you know? Try searching the journal title in Google and read the publisher's blurb.
  • Audience- written for scholars and experts in the field. How do you know?  The level of the language is usually a give away.  It will be technical and formal.
  • Includes a bibliography and/or footnotes with citations of sources used.

Scholarship is always changing. Try to find the most recent scholarly sources you can.

Printing and Scanning in the Libraries

All libraries on campus are equipped with "bookscan stations," which allow you to:

  • scan documents and save them to a USB drive, or
  • scan documents and then send them to a printer.  You cannot email a scanned document from a bookscan station.

Scanning to a USB drive is free.  Moffitt Copy Center sells flash drives.

Scanning documents to print is 8 cents a page (color printing: 60 cents a page).picture of open book

In order to send documents to the printer from any of the public computers in the libraries, you must have the following:

  • A document that's on the Web or attached to your email (the public computers in the libraries will not open files from a USB or other drive)
  • A Cal 1 Card, with money loaded onto the debit account (go here to make a deposit to your Cal 1 Card account).  
    This is not the same as meal plan points! Your Cal 1 Card debit account is a separate fund on your card.
