Access to Print Resources (as of 3/20/20)

 

As part of UCLA's transition to remote instruction, and the Library's necessary decision to close all Library locations, access to print resources and special collections is not available. Please take advantage of electronic resources such as ebooks and article databases. The UCLA community can connect to these online resources off-campus via the VPN or proxy server. Interlibrary loan is still available for electronic journal articles; however, ebooks cannot be borrowed on interlibrary loan.

For help with any of our resources, please schedule an appointment with a librarian (audio/video Zoom appointments available), contact your subject librarian directly, or use our 24/7 chat service.    

    

Welcome!

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 are relevant to studying the Sixties. Remember that you can always ask a reference librarian for help.

Quick Links

Need Help with Your Paper?

Need help finding sources for your paper? Not sure you're expressing yourself clearly? Want some guidance on college writing?

If you need help doing research, the Powell Library offers RESEARCH CONSULTATIONS. Book your appointment or just drop in to Room 238 Powell between 10am and 6pm Monday-Thursday, 10am to 5pm Friday. You can also make an appointment with a reference librarian.

If you need help with writing, schedule an appointment with a peer learning facilitator at the Undergraduate Writing Center (UWC).

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.]
