Finding Books

here are many resources to use to find books at UCSD, as well as the broader San Diego, California, and Global Community.  A useful strategy is to begin with ROGER to do a UCSD-specific search and then expand out to MELVYL if necessary to search for books available throughout the University of California System.  Because it draws from UC records in WorldCat (a consortial, global library catalog), this approach allows you to expand out further from MELVYL to global and international searches by selecting "Libraries Worldwide" from the drop-down menu, or to drill down to UCSD by selecting "Search UCSD."  Alternatively, you can use or CIRCUIT to do a San Diego-specific library search. The HathiTrust Digital Library is another great resource.
