Linguistics: VPN (Remote Access) & Wifi

The Library licenses thousands of electronic resources, including databases, ebooks, and journals. As part of these license agreement, many of these are not available to the general public. Off-campus, you must use VPN to access them. This identifies you as a UC San Diego student who can use these resources. Otherwise, you could be prompted to login to these sites, or asked to pay for content, which we do not want you to do. 

Below is a short video that will walk you through the process of installing and using the AnyConnect VPN client to access the online databases, ebooks, and journals from off campus. You can download the VPN client from VPN also requires the Duo 2-Step Login (more about using Duo with VPN). NOTE: The video is based on a VPN installation for Windows 10; it may look different with other operating systems, particularly on mobile devices..

If you are on-campus, you need to be connected on the campus network, either via ResNet in the residence halls or campus apartments, or the UCSD-PROTECTED Wifi Network elsewhere on campus. Do not use the UCSD Guest Wifi network; it will not connect you to our electronic resources.

Accessing Electronic Resources?

If you are located on-campus, make sure that you are connected to the UCSD-Protected wifi.

If you are located off-campus, start by setting up VPN AnyConnect on your device.
