Coming Soon: New Features to be Added to Web Portal

The Public Health Library will add some new features to the web portal very soon.

You will be able to:

– Search your Document Delivery requests, so you will easily be able to
learn if you requested a particular article or book, and when;
– Sort online lists of your requests, by title, author, or date
requested; and
– View a list of books checked out to you, with one-click online renewing.

Also, recently added, is the ability to get a list of your canceled
Document Delivery requests.

Web portal users will soon see a message on the log-in page outlining
the new features.

Not yet a web portal user? The web portal to contract services provides a custom online interface to request services from the Public Health Library, such as journal articles and literature searches. Online request forms are pre-populated with your personal information (name, email, etc.) You can also view requests you have made in the past, as well as pending requests. The web portal also includes a link to electronic journal and electronic book passwords, so you can more easily access these resources from anywhere. To obtain your web portal username and password, please send an email to Sarah Ngo,, or call her at (510) 642-2510. She
will need your name, address, phone and fax numbers, email address, and
unit, branch, or program name.
