Some periodicals are available on microforms. Library staff will help you find the microforms and use them.
If you cannot find the item on the shelf, a librarian at the circulation/service desk will be happy to assist you.
Many electronic reference source (dictionaries, encyclopedias, statistical sources, etc) can be found in the Online Reference Shelf Research Guide.

UC libraries subscribe to many e-book collections or databases that include e-books in a variety of disciplines. Not all of those books have individual records in the library catalog. You may go directly into the electronic book collections and search or browse their content.
