New library catalog under construction

In late May, the UC Berkeley Library will be launching a new catalog named OskiCat. OskiCat will replace the Pathfinder and GLADIS catalogs and will feature enhanced search and circulation functionality that faculty, students, and staff have requested. We will be releasing more information about the new system in the coming months, but users should be aware that there will be some disruption in the way new materials are processed during this transition. While Pathfinder and GLADIS will still be searchable and show circulation information for materials, new materials will not be added to these catalogs until after the OskiCat transition.

Melvyl and Next-Generation Melvyl will not show new materials for the Berkeley campus, but resources from other campuses will be unaffected.

If you need more information about the new catalog implementation and how it effects you, please contact your subject librarian.
