UC Library Search

Finding and borrowing resources from libraries across the UC system is about to get easier!

On July 27, 2021, the libraries on all 10 University of California campuses will be connected through UC Library Search, a unified discovery and borrowing system. UC Library Search features the following enhancements:

  • Search your home campus library collection as well as the collections of all 10 UC libraries in the same system;
  • Locate the full text of millions of print and online books, journal articles, and other content
  • Borrow and renew materials from any library in the UC system without retyping your library card number

The enhanced features of UC Library Search will replace Melvyl as the UC-wide library catalog search tool. As a single, unified system, UC Library Search offers powerful tools to help the UC Libraries make data-informed decisions around collections development and new services for library users.

Stay tuned to find out more information about UC Library Search in the coming months. For additional information about the project, view our more in-depth About page.
