Melvyl Catalog

Melvyl®: the Catalog of the University of California Libraries contains records for materials (books, journals, movies, maps, music scores and recordings, computer files, dissertations, government documents, etc.) held by the libraries of the ten UC campuses, and other libraries in the WorldCat library network.  The database contains over 23,000,000 records, and most campuses update their holdings on a weekly basis.
