Virtual Study Rooms

Looking for a virtual space for you and your classmates to work on a group project? Would you benefit from a designated time to finally knock out that 10 page paper? Seeking a safe, virtual space to connect with friends? Book this virtual study room to enjoy the perks of a Zoom pro account while creating structured time for work, study, and connection. 

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.]

COVID-19: Library Information, Resources, & Print Access

Online Help

There is a lot of online help for remote learning. Below are some links that you can look at on your own. 

Quick Links

Major Communication Journals

These major journals are not included in CIOS. The catalog will link to an online version if we have access to it. Otherwise you can look at the print issues in the library.

Bibliographic Management Tools

EndNote and Zotero are bibliographic management programs that will help you organize your references and create bibliographies in 100s of citation styles (e.g., APA, MLA, Chicago, Turabian, etc.)

An EndNote license can be purchased at the UCLA Store for downloading onto your own computer or you can use the web-based EndNote Basic at no cost. The EndNote and EndNote Basic or Zotero research guides have much more information about using these tools.
