Find course reserves via OskiCat

oskicat banner

Finding course reserves is a cinch in OskiCat!

Click the Course Reserves tab, then search by either course or instructor. Present the call number to the Circulation Desk staff; reserve items are shelved behind the Circulation Desk.

NOTE: To search for Public Health courses by course number, you must use either "public health" or "ph."  This represents a change from Gladis, the old UCB catalog for finding reserves.

Questions? Feel free to call our circulation desk, 642-2511.
