Everything I Need to Know About the UC San Diego Libraries

What does UCSD have?

  • UC Library Search:  for books, journals (including electronic formats), databases, other materials
  • E-Books - learn more about using them at UCSD
  • E-Journals - search for a specific journal (or keep up-to-date with a key journal in your field)
  • The Libraries Databases A-Z find additional databases that could help with your research

How can I make copies of articles or books (book chapters)?

  • Use our photocopies - your ID card is your print card
  • Better yet, bring a thumb drive and do a digital copy
  • Scan the article or book chapter on our scanner

Can I Access "It" from Home?

What if UCSD does not have what I need? 

  • Use interlibrary loan (ILL) and ask us to get a book or copy of an article from an other library.
    • ILL form - if you know we don't have it, you can just enter the info into our online form

A Quick Review -- Scholarly Articles

Medicine often has different research resources than is typical in the legal field.  The key resouces for research are "scholarly articles"  - most likely peer-reviewed, too.  You are familiar with this type of literature but may not have articulated what it really is. For a quick refresher, check out Scholarly Articles.
