Finding and borrowing resources from libraries across the UC system is about to get easier!
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.
The enhanced features of UC Library Search will replace Melvyl as the UC-wide library catalog search tool. As a single, interconnected system, UC Library Search offers powerful features to help the UC libraries make data-informed decisions around collections development and new services for library users.
Enhancements available through UC Library Search will include:
- Search UC Riverside local library collection as well as the collections of all 10 UC libraries in the same system;
- Single sign-on: Borrow and renew materials from any library in the UC system without retyping your library card number;
- Access via the catalog to millions of subscribed and Open Access online books, journal articles, and other digital content
Stay tuned to find out more information about UC Library Search in the coming months. In the meantime, check out this page for additional information about the project, including the project timeline for this new release.
