Welcome to Library Search

How does this work?

Library Search allows you to search print and e-books, journal articles, digital collections, and more, all in one place. Library Search makes it easy to find, explore, cite, save, and share a broad variety of UCI library resources. For more focused searching consult our Research Guides. For online access from off-campus, connect through the VPN (Library Search may not work with the WebVPN - we recommend downloading and using the software VPN).

Library Search includes only UCI-owned resources - for books, articles, and more beyond UCI, search Melvyl (UCI, UC Libraries, & libraries worldwide).

Library Search also helps you manage your research. Sign in to your account to:
