General Library Info

Connecting from Off-Campus

Remote Access to Library Resources  

Most of our e-journals and databases are restricted so that only current UCSD faculty, staff, and students can use them from off-campus. In order to get access to these resources from an off-campus computer, you need to use the VPN.
VPN AnyClient is the preferred way to access the Library's resources from off campus. Please note that the web-based VPN EasyConnect does not work well with all databases.
