Set up Alerts

In many databases, you can set up alerts to get emailed when new entries appear for a given search. See how to set up alerts for PubMed and CINAHL Complete here.

Tips from Your Librarian

We have many different places to access electronic and physical materials at our libraries.

  • UC Library Search conducts very broad searches - it searches books, journal articles, media, newspapers, archives, government documents, and more across the UC campuses.
  • For a more health sciences and nursing focused search experience, I recommend starting with PubMed and CINAHL Complete. Access instructions for these databases can be found on this page.
  • To see the full range of databases available to search, try the Databases A-Z search page.

Find Articles and Books

UC Library Search

Search collections across all UC campuses or limit your search to UCI. Includes print books and articles, electronic books and articles, book chapters, and more.

Interlibrary Loan & Transfers

  • Use UC Library Search to request articles and books not owned by UCI Libraries at no cost to you through interlibrary loan. 
  • To transfer materials from Langson/Science to the Grunigen Medical Library, use the Request link in UC Library Search record for the Langson/Science owned material and choose your pickup location as Grunigen.
  • For material found in WorldCat but not in UC Library Search, submit a request using the Blank ILL Request Form.
