I am very happy to meet virtually to provide more in-depth assistance/guidance with your research: Schedule a Meeting Here!
Here are some links to take virtual tours of UCSD Library and its website:
Remote Access to Library Resources: In order to access the Library's electronic resources -- including the UC-Wide Catalog (Melvyl) -- from an off-campus computer, you need to set up Virtual Private Network (VPN) access.
In order to access UCSD Librarians and UCSD Library Services as quickly as possible, use the Library’s Ask-Us-Now page which has recently been redesigned in light of the critical need for online and timely information.
Additional tips for optimal connectivity:
1. Please make sure you have downloaded the VPN client and have it set for allthruUCSD, See the necessary directions/links here. To make sure you have properly set up your VPN, test it here. If possible, make sure you also set up Duo Two-Step Login (instructions and help here).
2. Please make sure you are using the best browser for your particular computer. Unless you are using an actual PC, you probably need to use the most native browser to that system -- such as Safari for Apple, Microsoft Edge for a Surface Pro, and Chrome for a Chromebook.
Additional Research Guides which are particularly helpful for their subject content or given the focus on virtual services and tools at this time include:
Film, Video and Streaming Collections, which provides significant information about accessing streaming film content and using it in instruction
GIS & Geospatial Technologies, which provides GIS tutorials, data, books, course-specific GIS guides and other geospatial related information that might be of interest and access to our GIS Librarian, Amy Work.
For the safety and wellbeing of our community, Geisel Library and the Biomedical Library Building are closed effective Monday, March 16, 2020 until further notice.

For learning or practicing Spanish, Mango Languages, offered via the UCSD LInguistics Department is a great online resource.
