Welcome

This guide is designed to help you get started using the UCLA Library. There are many resources to explore and that can help you with your academics and research. 

It is not subject-specific - you can select other guides that have been created for a class or a discipline. Click on Research Guides at the top of this page to get to the complete list. If you're having trouble figuring out which Research Guide is the right one for you, visit Find the Right Research Guides.

The UCLA Library houses more than fourteen million volumes and forty thousand journal subscriptions. Research assistants are available to help you with your research needs, in-person, by telephone, email, and on-line chat. We're here to help!

Quick Links

Connect from Off-Campus or via Wireless On-Campus

Most of the links on these pages go to subscription sources which are accessible from any computer on campus. All campus wireless networks (eduroam, UCLA_WIFI, or UCLA_WEB) provide access to online subscription content.

UCLA students, faculty, and staff can access these sites from off-campus using either the UCLA VPN Client (a program you install on your computer) or Bruin Online Proxy Server (a simple setting in your browser). To set up an iPAD, follow the instructions for the iPhone. You can also get access through UCLA mobile. Off-campus access will require Multi-Factor Authentication in addition to a Bruin ID and Password. If you need help setting up your computer, contact the UCLA IT Support Center at (310) 267-4357 or help@it.ucla.edu . They answer the phone 24/7 and are very helpful.

[NOTE: If you are using a Mac, you may need to use Chrome or Firefox, not Safari, to read some of the pdf material.]
