How to Access Library Resources: Click the link to a library resource. You may be prompted to log in with your UC username and password. You may have to complete Duo Two-Factor Authentication as well.
These prompts can occur both on and off campus.
Additional Information and Resources for Accessing Library Resources
Start with a keyword search, then refine by subject or other facets later.
Building a search query:
Narrow your results:
Look at theses/dissertations at UC and worldwide
Configure Google Scholar for UC Libraries access
Enable Google Scholar to identify UC-licensed full-text of journal articles. Access appears as a "Find Full-Text at UC" link.
Kopernio Browser Plug-In for Full-Text
When you reach available full-text, you should get a green Kopernio “View PDF” prompt for full-text in the lower left. You can try out this example from Nature Nano - https://www.nature.com/articles/s41565-020-0655-z and ACS Nano - https://pubs.acs.org/doi/10.1021/acsnano.0c01687 . You need to be on the article’s page (vs. search results) to trigger a “View PDF” prompt.
Initially, the full-text opens in Kopernio’s viewer. You can download the PDF file from here. You can also save PDFs to a personal Kopernio locker; however, there is a limit in their storage space. A paid Premium account gives more storage (how they make money).
