Starting July 20, 2009, the UC Berkeley Library will be conducting surveys to help us understand who is using the Library, what resources are being used, and for what purpose (instruction, sponsored research, or general research).
We will be conducting both an in-person survey at selected library locations and an online survey, asking users to tell us why they are using the Library at that time. Completing the online survey will take less than a minute. The in-person survey takes just a bit longer.
The study will run during random 2-hour intervals once every month for the next twelve months. We appreciate your assistance with this valuable study.
If you have questions about the survey please contact Elise Woods.
The California Digital Library's new Web Archiving Service provides ongoing access to websites of historical and cultural value that would otherwise change or disappear over time.
Topics represented include the 2003 California recall election, the Guantanamo Bay Detention Camp, and political sites from the Middle East.
The UC Berkeley is changing its VPN (Virtual Private Network) service. All current VPN users will need to download and install the new VPN client software by August 12.
VPN is an alternative to the proxy server for off-campus access to journal article databases and other licensed library resources, and is required for some non-web-based resources. The new VPN client, called AnyConnect, includes a "Library VPN" option. As before, you need to run the VPN software before accessing licensed library resources, and turn it off when your session is over.
For details and installation instructions, see our VPN page.
For more information about the options available, see Connecting from Off Campus.
