COVID-19 Library Updates

Dear UCLA Library users,

Because of the current circumstances surrounding COVID-19 restrictions, the UCLA Library is closed to the public until further notice, and all librarians are working remotely. We apologize for the inconvenience the lack of access to our print materials and in-person library consultations may cause you, but we are pleased to present a guide with links to Temporary Expanded Access to Online Resources for UCLA students, faculty and staff. 

Current UCLA students, faculty, and staff can access all electronic journals, databases, e-books and more by using the proxy-server or VPN.

We have a rich array on online modules containing online library, research and writing instruction. These can be viewed independently or embedded into course CCLE sites.  

For general librarian assistance, please use our Ask-a-Librarian chat services.

For assistance and consultation on remote library instruction in the disciplines of Communication Studies, Jewish & Israel Studies, Library & Information Studies, Philosophy, Political Science, Public Policy and Sociology, please feel free to contact me via email. If we need a more in-depth consultation I am happy to set up a zoom meeting.

Click here to find a list of all our subject specialists.

Please stay healthy and positive during this unusual time and I look forward to working with you all back on campus as soon as viable.

Best regards,

Diane Mizrachi, PhD

Librarian for Social Science, Humanities, Jewish & Israel Studies

Welcome!

This guide highlights resources and techniques for library research and services for students in the Cluster 48: Political Violence in the Modern World: Causes, Cases, and Consequences class, but is open to anyone interested in the topic.

The Internet has brought a vast array of information to your desktop. The challenge for students is to identify the relevant sources, get to them easily, and critically evaluate their content.  Some of the following websites are licensed for UC users only, others are open to all.  Those that are licensed will not turn up in a Google search.

This guide will lead you to resources that can help you find material for your assignments. Remember that you can always ask a reference librarian for 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 Bruin Online Proxy Server (a simple setting in your browser) or the UCLA VPN Client (a program you install on your computer). 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.

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