Beginning on July 5, 2017, the Library Catalog will now be UCSB Library Search. UCSB Library Search, an advanced discovery tool, will search across hundreds of catalogs, indexes, and databases to deliver the most relevant results from the Library’s increasingly diverse resources. UCSB Library Search will be accessible from the Library’s website homepage.
UCSB Library has selected a new, more modern online search tool to replace our 16-year old Library Catalog. The current Library Catalog is the entry point for locating books, journals, DVDs, and other materials held by UCSB Library. However, additional search tools are required for searching electronic journal articles and materials at other libraries.
Researchers who use the UCSB campus VPN (virtual private network) to access Library subscription resources from off-campus should be aware that Enterprise Technology Services (ETS) has upgraded the service. The new VPN supports a wider variety of operating systems, including mobile clients for iOS, Android, and ChromeOS. To use the new VPN, users must download and install new client software.
