The IGS Library remains closed, but we are implementing a phased plan for providing access to physical collections. We will update this page as services evolve.

Library staff are available for research and reference help via phone, email, or video chat. Please contact us at igsl [at] with questions or to schedule a virtual appointment.

Many titles from campus libraries (including IGS) are available online through UC's agreement with the HathiTrust Digital Archive ETAS. If an online version is available, the OskiCat record will include this note: "Available online through HathiTrust Emergency Access Service. Click the HathiTrust button on the right and log in to access this book online."

This short video and this how-to document describe how to access HathiTrust ETAS books. Feel free to email IGSL staff if you have questions (igsl [at] 

Books that don't have an online version in HathiTrust can be checked out through the OskiXpress service. Learn more about how to use the Oski Xpress pickup service.

Berkeley's online resources require that you authenticate yourself as a Berkeley student, faculty or staff to access them from off-campus. See connecting to the Library from off campus to learn how to connect via EZProxy or VPN full tunnel.

To return any IGSL books, please put them in the book drops at the north or south sides of Doe Library, or outside the south entrance to Moffitt Library.
