Be the first to get a sneak peak at the new UC Berkeley Library website!
We are looking for undergraduates, graduate students, faculty, and lecturers to sit down with us for 30 minutes for user testing of the new website. Testing will take place at Doe Library. Volunteers get a $15 gift card to FSM Cafe in return for their time. If you are interested and are available between May 5 - May 9, please contact Lisa Ngo at lngo[at]berkeley.edu and include your name, year, and major.
The UC Berkeley Library is pleased to announce that we have added OnePetro to our ever growing collection of online resources for faculty, staff, and students.
OnePetro is a searchable database of publications in the oil and gas exploration and production industry and includes conference papers and journal articles from the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE), the American Petroleum Institute (API), NACE International, the International Society of Polar and Offshore Engineers (ISOPE), and more. While the UC Berkeley Library has provided print access to publications from these societies in the past, OnePetro provides an easy one-stop shop online for instant access to the papers you need.
More information about OnePetro can be found on the OnePetro site.
Use Education Source (formerly Education Full Text) to find articles and more on all education topics, including adult education, continuing education, distance learning, government funding, multicultural education, social issues, and more.
Education Source contains a substantial number of citations on the teaching and learning of science. Start your search using thesaurus terms such as "Civil Engineering - Study & teaching," "Physics - Study & teaching," etc. Narrow your search by adding such terms as: case study, evaluation, and so forth. The EBSCO search interface easily allows for applying limits to your search such as a date range, or limiting to peer-reviewed content. You can quickly change the sort from relevance to date; other sort options are also available. Education Source includes the full text for over 1,800 journals, with UC-eLinks to access the full text of more, as well as full text for more than 550 books and monographs, numerous education-related conference papers, and citations for over 5 million articles.
Did you know that webcasts of the weekly Physics Department Colloquia are hosted and preserved by the Library?
