Library Catalogs

The UC Library Search online catalog contains all information resources in all formats available to users from all 10 UC campuses and the regional storage facilities. InterLibrary Loans can be made from any campus library.

WorldCat is the largest holdings inventory of 56,000 member libraries worldwide and appoximately 1.4 billion records.  UCI's holdings are noted. For content not found in UC Library Search, it can be requested from a WorldCat library.

InterLibrary Loan & Document Supply

The UCI Libraries are currently only borrowing electronic materials as most libraries remain closed due to the pandemic.  Please use the "Request" feature icon in most databases to request content not currently available at UCI.  Or submit requests for book chapters and article requests via this link .

For Elsevier articles from 2019+ please go to ScienceDirect, find the article that you need, and click through:

The UC did not renew its subscription to the Elsevier Journal package for 2019 going forward .  This dictates that content from those journals be requested via ILL. Also selective content for which the UC does not have perpetual access must be requested.  Delivery is free &  fast but not immediate and requires planning for access for current content from journals such as Lancet, Lancet Oncology, Cancer Letters, Cancer Epidemiology, Gene and hundreds of others.  Check ScienceDirect for access or use the Request function in databases to order articles, or find alternative sources.  When searching pay special attention to the publisher.  To request articles from 2019+, go to ScienceDirect, click on "Get Access", then on "SFX Context Sensitive Linking" and then on "InterLibrary Loan Request" and enter the 16 digit number on the lower left hand corner of your UCI Photo ID (if you do not have that you should contact by eMail using your UCI eMail address and ask how you can obtain a bar code). Complete form with your eMail address and you will be sent a pdf of the article very shortly at no cost to you.  Be selective and mindful of how much you order.
