We now have access to ebooks published by the American Geophysical Union through AGU Digital Library Books (1956-2012) thanks to a one-time purchase by the California Digital Library. The collection includes 17 book series and 580 book titles. Eventually, these ebooks will appear in OskiCat; in the meantime, you can access them directly at http://www.agu.org/pubs/dlibrary/#books.
You may have noticed a new library location in OskiCat - Lawrence Berkeley National Lab (LBNL)!
On July 30, over 17,000 records from the LBNL Library were added to our library catalog. What does this change mean for you?
If you have any questions about this exciting development, please be sure to ask your librarian.
Note: The Request button does not yet appear in OskiCat for LBNL Library items, so campus patrons cannot place requests themselves at this time. Very soon, this problem will be fixed. In the meantime, please ask circulation desk staff to place requests for LBNL Library materials for you.

For decades researchers have turned to Grzimek's Animal Life Encyclopedia for concise accounts of thousands of species, including information on evolution and systematics, physical characteristics, distribution, habitat, behavior, feeding ecology and diet, reproductive biology, conservation status and significance to humans.
The online version of Grzimek's (pronounced "Chimmek's") includes all the content of the print version, but with enhanced searching and browsing features. Species information can be browsed by order and family following the organization of the print encyclopedia (volumes cover Lower Metazoans and Lesser Deuterostomes, Protostomes, Insects, Fishes, Amphibians, Reptiles, Birds and Mammals). Species can also be looked up in the linked cumulative index, or searched by scientific or common name and keyword. Online content can be viewed as HTML or PDFs, and can be saved, downloaded or printed. For each volume there is a linked list of illustrations, and every HTML page includes a link to the Merriam-Webster Collegiate Dictionary for looking up unfamiliar terms.
