Organic Chemistry: Home

This guide covers the principal library resources for organic chemistry, supporting researchers as well as students in CHEM 40A-B, CHEM 41A-C, CHEM 43A, CHEM 143B-D, and other upper division courses in these courses. If you are looking for more help with your literature project posters or papers, including infographics and ACS style for citations, please check our organic chemistry projects guide..

Protected Wifi for On Campus Access

On campus, use the UCSD-Protected Wifi (or RESNET-Protected) network to access our licensed electronic resources from a laptop or mobile device.

  • The UCSD guest wifi will get you online, but not to the databases, ebooks, and journals that we license.
  • If the Protected Wifi networks are slow, you can use the UCSD guest wifi AND VPN as if you were off campus.

VPN for Off-Campus Access

The Library licenses thousands of electronic resources, including databases, ebooks, and journals. Many of these resources are only available to UC San Diego students, faculty, and staff due to license agreements.

If you are located off-campus, you must use the AnyConnect VPN client to access these. Instructions for downloading are below.

  • When connecting via VPN, select 2-step secured althruucsd option from the group menu. VPN also requires DUO 2-step authentication each time

Setting up VPN helps identify you as a member of the UC San Diego community, so you can use these resources rather than being prompted to login or pay for content. If you need help connecting from off-campus, follow our instructions and troubleshooting tips!
