Problem with Interlibrary Loan request function

Some users have been unable to log in after clicking the Request button in Melvyl to place an Interlibrary Loan request.

Update: This issue has been resolved.

Problems have also been reported with the request form available through the button on our Interlibrary Loan page.

Update: This issue is not browser-specific, but is related to cookies (what's this?). If you attempt to use this webform with cookies disabled in your browser, you will be prompted to enable cookies.

Meanwhile, it is still possible to make a request in person at the Interlibrary Borrowing Office (133 Doe Library) during these hours.

OskiCat and proxy server downtime

Update: The following services will be unavailable from 12:01am to 4am on Saturday morning, January 15 (not Friday morning as originally announced), while we perform scheduled maintenance:

  • OskiCat, the UC Berkeley library catalog (including searching, request, and renewal functions).
  • UCB call number and availability information in both versions of Melvyl.
  • The library proxy server for accessing licensed electronic resources (VPN will still work).

Other than that, our website will not be affected.
