Catalogs

To find books, journals and other media owned by the UC Berkeley Library search Berkeley's OskiCat or the UC-wide MELVYL catalog.

Electronic Resource Finder

The Electronic Resource Finder is a directory of the Library's databases and other online resources.  It is organized by subject (e.g. philosophy), type of material (e.g. dissertations), or title (e.g. Past Masters).  It is a useful tool to help you choose the right resources for your particular research needs.

Connecting From Off Campus

UC Berkeley students, faculty and staff can access Library resources from off campus 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.

About the Collection

The Library's collections support the research needs and curriculum of the UC Berkeley Philosophy Department and the philosophical interests of many interdisciplinary programs on campus.  Multimedia and electronic materials are as actively acquired as print books and journals.  Most print materials in philosophy are in the Gardner (Main) Stacks in Doe Library with additional core English language texts in the Moffitt Undergraduate Library.  Materials related to mathematical logic are located in the Mathematics-Statistics Library; those related to psychology are located in the Education-Psychology Library.  The East Asian Library houses all materials in East Asian languages.
