California Digital Library  - http://www.cdlib.org/
This site is not only the entrance to all the libraries in the UC System, but also offers a wide array of other online resources. "The California Digital Library was founded in 1997 by University of California President Richard Atkinson, who called it 'a library without walls.' CDL staff and advisory groups are drawn from every UC campus, from affiliated research laboratories, and from the UC Office of the President. The Library is built on the extensive base of UC knowledge and experience in developing and distributing digital materials. President Atkinson charged the CDL with continuing the selection, building, management, and preservation of the University's shared collections of digital resources and applying new technologies to enhance sharing of the University's physical collections. The CDL's Directory of Collections and Services gives library users access to a vast array of intellectual resources (due to license restrictions some resources are available only to UC faculty, students, and staff)."
