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.
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.
The UCSB Library website (www.library.ucsb.edu) just got a major facelift--our first redesign of the site in more than five years. The redesigned website is mobile friendly and takes advantage of increased database-driven functionality to minimize duplicate content. A simplified navigational structure and reduced number of pages makes it easier for users to quickly find what they’re looking for.
