Library Catalog    (formerly Harvest Catalog)     
The Library Catalog tells you what the UC Davis library owns, what the call number is, where it is located, and whether or not it is checked out. If there is an electronic version that we subscribe to, the link will be in the catalog. 
Use the catalog to locate books, journals (but not articles), government documents, dissertations, maps, music scores & recordings, movies, and any other materials the library owns. 
MELVYL UC  Library Catalog                  Melvyl Help
The MELVYL catalog tells you what all UC campus libraries own, and also searches other institutions. 
As with the UCD Library Catalog, MELVYL gives records for books, journals, government documents, dissertations, maps, music scores & recordings, movies, and other materials.  MELVYL does index some articles but is not a good option for searching for articles in the sciences. (Click on the ARTICLES tab to access article databases.)
The REQUEST button:      allows you to request items from other institutions (UC and non-UC).

GOOGLE Books                                Google Books Help
  • Library catalogs only search catalog entries (author, title, subject indexing, etc) not the full text of the book
  • Google Books searches full-text of books (only titles that Google has scanned), but you cannot access most of them (because they are still under copyright)
  • But you can use Google Books to identify titles you might be interested in
