Research Guides for other subjects or courses can provide links to many more sources that might be useful for your research, depending on your topic. Go to Research Guides home page to select appropriate guides to look at. Some examples are:
This guide is intended to give UCLA students, staff and faculty interested in African American Studies resources an easy-to-use jumping off point for accessing UCLA Library materials, as well as other Internet resources. You'll find information here on both print and electronic resources, as well as on strategies for conducting research.
This guide will always be a work in progress. If you have any suggestions for what you would like to see included please e-mail me.
Connect from Off-Campus
Most of the links on these pages go to subscription sources which are accessible from any computer on campus. UCLA students, faculty, and staff can access these sites from off-campus using either the Bruin Online Proxy Server (a simple setting in your browser) or the UCLA VPN Client (a program you install on your computer).
To access restricted resources from your laptop on campus, use eduroam wireless network (secure data connection). If you encounter problems joining the Eduroam network, try the UCLA_WIFI wireless network (restricted, but unsecured).
[NOTE: If you are using a Mac, you may need to use Firefox, not Safari, to read some of the pdf material.]
EndNote is a bibliographic management program that will help you organize your references. It can be purchased at the UCLA Store so that you can download it onto your own computer or you can use the web-based EndNote Web version at no cost. The following handouts will help you get started. More information is in the EndNote and EndNote Web guide.
