Electronic Resource & Database Access

There will be no off-campus access to Library electronic resources and databases this Friday, November 28 from 6-10pm. Library buildings are also closed for the Thanksgiving holiday during that time.

Using Google Scholar with UC-eLinks from Off Campus

Using Google Scholar with the proxy server will help you gain access to licensed library resources when you are off campus. When you are off campus, our computer systems do not know if you are affiliated with UCSB. In order to establish that you are indeed affiliated with UCSB, you will need to first run your Google Scholar search through the proxy server. Once this is established, you will see links to UC-eLinks and full text articles when you do your searches.
