It’s finally here -- UC Library Search is live! UC Library users now have access to a more robust discovery tool powered by Ex Libris Alma/Primo that allows you to find and borrow materials from across all UC campus library locations. UC Library Search has now replaced Melvyl and UCSB Library Search. 

You can check it out at search.library.ucsb.edu

In addition to greater ease in finding and borrowing materials, UC Library Search enhances library services by streamlining patron data and catalog records.

What this means for you is improved accuracy of loan information for materials borrowed from other UC Libraries and the ability to visit other UC Library locations to check out materials quickly and easily using your campus ID.

Together, with this tool, we will continue to advance and support the research of our prestigious institution. 

UC Library Search will continue to evolve; today is just the beginning.
