Q. How do I access the library resources remotely?

VPN

Answer

You need a valid UCID and password and be a current student, faculty, or staff member to access library resources remotely.  

(When you are on campus, you will be automatically authenticated by IP address.  So even if you start at a webpage for a paid resource,  you will be allowed in.  This does not work from off-campus.)
 

To connect and authenticate, you have three options:

  • EZProxy (recommended) - easiest and most reliable authentication  

From off campus-you MUST start from the library homepage in order to encounter the correct login box that will allow you through to paid subscriptions.

  • VPN - (requires set-up) client software that you must install on your PC.  

Note: when configuring, default for Group must be changed from Split Tunnel to Full Tunnel

 

Using GOOGLE SCHOLAR remotely

  • When you are on-campus, you will be able to search Google Scholar and encounter links to full text for which we have subscriptions.
  • When off-campus, you will not see these links, but should go to the library homepage and search for articles you find with paywalls on the web to see if we have them.
