LBNL Library now in OskiCat

You may have noticed a new library location in OskiCat - Lawrence Berkeley National Lab (LBNL)!

Sample LBNL OskiCat record

On July 30, over 17,000 records from the LBNL Library were added to our library catalog. What does this change mean for you?

  • Campus patrons can now request items from the LBNL Library to pick up at any campus library (just like they can do for NRLF items)
  • LBNL staff can request and check out materials from campus libraries using their LBNL photo ID
  • LBNL staff can request items from libraries at other universities using the Request option in Melvyl
  • People with joint UCB/LBNL appointments are considered campus patrons and will continue to use their Cal1 cards as their library cards

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.

Grzimek's Animal Life Encyclopedia online

Grzimek's Animal Life Encyclopedia

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.
