Help us improve Melvyl

The UC Libraries are trying to get a better understanding of how people use Melvyl, and we need your help!

We are looking for UC Berkeley juniors, seniors, and graduate students, who would like to show us how you use the Melvyl system.  If you use Melvyl for your academic work, we're interested in speaking with you.

These sessions will take place on Thursday, April 26 in Moffitt Library.  In exchange for about an hour of your time, we'll give you a $25 gift certificate to the Cal Student Store.

If you are interested in helping us, please sign up at by Wednesday, April 18.

If you have questions about this project, please email Lynn Jones:
