HIEA 166: Creating Ming Histories

This guide is designed to help you start your research papers or projects using library resources on the Ming dynasty.   

Off-Campus or Remote Access

Many online resources are subscription-based and paid for by the UCSD Libraries.

Viewing from off-campus is restricted to only current UCSD faculty, staff, and students.

When off-campus, you will need to connect your computer to the UCSD network to get access to these resources.

Two ways to do this:

  1. Proxy server 

  2. Virtual Private Network (VPN)

For more information or help with off-campus access, contact the ACMS Help Desk.
