A CCA Libraries guide to resources in business and design, supporting the research demands of CCA's MBA in Design Strategy.
To access most library online resources, such as article or image databases, from off-campus you need to login with your CCA library card. Your CCA student ID card is your library card. Take it to the circulation desk at either library to obtain a library barcode. The registration process takes about 5 minutes, but must be done in person.
The library website provides online access to a number of periodical indexes and scores of full-text articles in leading business and design journals.
When you don't have a citation, and are doing basic or beginning research, you can use the Article Search feature to search a number of article databases at once.
If you already have a reference or citation to a specific article, you can use the Journal Finder to search by journal title and find whether or not CCA has the journal online or on the shelves.
Provides access to abstracts for journal articles published in over 450 international craft and design journals since 1973 and includes data on over 50,000 designers, craftspeople, studios, workshops and companies.

Materials in the UCB Business Library are not available for visitors to check-out, but "campus visitors are accorded free on site access to reference assistance, electronic research resources, reference collections, government reference materials, and the Library's reading rooms." Visitors can purchase UC Berkeley library cards for $100/year (cheaper if you join the alumni association), but there is no off-campus access to electronic resources and databases for visitors.
