University of California's direct connection to articles

UC-eLinks logo

UC-eLinks connects scholars directly with articles and ebooks by providing an easy way to move from an article or book citation to the actual publication.

Since UC-eLinks debuted in 2002, we’ve seen shifts in the way scholars do research. Discovery and delivery have merged — researchers expect access to publications at the same time as they find them. They prefer articles that are available immediately online.

UC-eLinks lets users:

  • Seamlessly discover and access publications
  • Check to see if an item is available in the UC libraries
  • Request items not available on their home campuses

UC-eLinks runs on SFX software from Ex Libris. Learn more about what UC-eLinks does.
