UC Library Search: Home

This guide gives tips on how to use the UC Library Search system.

What is UC Library Search?

With UC Library Search you can find and borrow materials from UC Libraries quickly and easily. As of July 27, 2021, the libraries on all 10 University of California campuses were connected through UC Library Search, a unified discovery and borrowing system. 

With UC Library Search, you are able to:

  • Search UCSB’s local library collection and all 10 UC libraries’ collections in the same system;

  • Locate millions of print and online books, journal articles, and other content;

  • Borrow and renew materials from any library in the UC system using only your UCSB NetID and password.
