REMOTE ACCESS TO LIBRARY RESOURCES:
VPN: In order to access the Library's electronic resources from an off-campus computer, you need to set up Virtual Private Network (VPN) access.
In order to access UCSD Librarians and UCSD Library Services as quickly as possible, use the Library’s Ask-Us-Now page which has recently been redesigned in light of the critical need for online and timely information.
Additional tips for optimal connectivity:
1. Please make sure you have downloaded the VPN client and have it set for 2-Step Secured allthruUCSD. See the necessary directions/links here. To make sure you have properly set up your VPN, test it here. If possible, make sure you also set up Duo Two-Step Login (instructions and help here).
2. Please make sure you are using the best browser for your particular computer. Unless you are using an actual PC, you probably need to use the most native browser to that sysatem (such as safari for a mac, or chrome for a chromebook)
