WRI 101-01 (Webb, Spring 2022): UC Library Search and PsycINFO

Welcome to UC Library Search!

UC Library Search is the University of California's new online catalog and search tool. You can access it directly here or from the Library's main webpage, or by click the UC Library Search logo next to the searchbox on the main page. UC Library Search will guide you to physical and print materials held at UC Merced's Kolligian Library and online journal articles and e-books from UC Merced's databases. You can also use UC Library Search to locate books, journal  articles, and other materials at the libraries of the other nine UC campuses and request that they be sent to UC Merced's library for pickup.
