You can search for physical or electronic books, media, and more using the UCSD (Roger), San Diego-wide (Circuit), or UC-wide (Melvyl) catalogs. Location and Request opportunities are within each catalog. Generally, the most effective order of use is Roger, Circuit, Melvyl.
Important! You need VPN access to use the library's resources when working off-campus. Use the Connect from Off-Campus link to download the VPN.
The catalog default search is a basic keyword search- great when you are starting out your search for books on a new topic. You may also search by Title, Author, and General Subjects. To limit your search to books in print, select the Books format above the search bar. If you are interested in e-Books, select the Electronic Materials format above the search bar.
