Remote Access to Library Resources

Remote Access to Library ResourcesIn order to access the Library's electronic resources -- including the UC-Wide Catalog (Melvyl) -- 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 iand timely information.

Additional tips for optimal connectivity:

1. Please make sure you have downloaded the VPN client and have it set for allthruUCSD,  See the necessary directions/links here.  To make sure you have properly set up your VPN, test it 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 system -- such as Safari for Apple, Microsoft Edge for a Surface Pro, and Chrome for a Chromebook. 

Digitization of Library Resources and Inter Library Loan

The UCSD Library is currently providing as much material electronically as possible to patrons during the period of Stay-At-Home work guidelines.  The only limitation are physical items; it is not possible to borrow any books, microfilm, DVDs etc., from other Libraries right now.

In some cases, it is possible to have local holdings digitized.  To request this service, please use the following link or click on the WE CAN SCAN IT! button next to the item in ROGER:
