As of today, July 30, 2012, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBL in the catalog) bibliographic records were added to UC Berkeley’s local OPAC, Oskicat ( and will now also appear in Melvyl under the holdings for UC Berkeley.   Examples of LBL records are OCLC numbers 645155708 (owned by LBL but not UC Berkeley) and 25708658 (owned by both LBL and Berkeley).  LBL researchers will now use REQUEST for Interlibrary Loan instead of their local ILL system.

There may be some LBL bibliographic or item records that may look a bit different.  LBL’s catalog and local practices are different from Berkeley’s, and while items added in the future will be handled according to UCB conventions and policies, users may run across migrated records that look different. Retrospective cleanup is not planned.

Thanks to all at UCB, LBL and CDL who contributed to the successful completion of this project.
