UC Library Search

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.

Go-Live Date: July 27, 2021
