Science & Engineering Libraries
Global Daily contains over 63 million climate data records from a total of 179 countries, covering all 7 continents on Earth. The climate data records cover the time period from 1833-2010. The data originate from the Global Historical Climatology Network via the National Climatic Data Center. Primary data elements include: maximum temperature, minimum temperature, and precipitation. Secondary elements include: evaporation, soil temperature, and wind movement.

PubChem provides information on the biological activities of small molecules.
Developed by NCBI at the National Institutes of Health, the database contains chemical structures, synonyms, descriptions, related urls, database cross-reference links to PubMed, protein 3D structures, and biological screening results.
Here’s an instructional video to help you get started with PubChem.

The Life Sciences Microcomputer Facility in VLSB 2105 closed at 7:50 pm on Thursday, Dec. 15, and is not scheduled to reopen until August 2012. The closure is required because of the Biology Lab Project construction and the relocation of the microcomputer facility to the northeast area of the Bioscience Library.
Hours for the other microcomputer facilities on campus can be found on the General Access Lab Hours page.
Our popular science IM reference service will be unavailable during winter intersession, December 17-January 16.
The collaborative 24/7 Ask a Librarian service will still be available. Ask a Librarian is a chat reference service that connects you to a librarian and emails you a transcript of your chat so you can reference it later.
As part of the mandatory campus Winter Holiday Closure and Energy Curtailment Period, all of the UC Berkeley libraries will be closed from Saturday, December 24, 2011 through Sunday, January 1, 2012.
