Finding and borrowing from libraries across the UC system is about to get easier!

On July 27, 2021, UC Library Search will go live, unifying the 10 University of California campus libraries under one integrated library system. UC Library Search will offer an integrated discovery and borrowing experience and will feature the following enhancements:

  • Ensures access to local materials without sacrificing discoverability from the wider collections of the UC and WorldCat (Libraries Worldwide) 
  • Eliminates the need to toggle between two systems (UCSC Search and Melvyl)
  • Simplifies the process of borrowing and renewing from another UC library
  • Greater discovery and access of full-text digital content throughout the library’s online collections

With this system/platform change, the long-used name Melvyl will be retired. Rest assured that the UC collections remain intact and the new system continues our tradition of making accessible a broad array of materials through innovative practices and technologies. 

The Library will communicate UC Library Search updates and progress. In the meantime, read more about this project on the University of California Libraries website
