Accessing Resources from Home

When you access library electronic resources from off-campus, you need to use one of the following methods. Using OneSearch will automatically prompt the EZProxy login.

1.  Campus VPN  (Recommended)

Setting up VPN (Virtual Private Network) on your personal computer allows students, faculty, and staff to access library resources from off-campus.

  • Download the VPN client 
  • Once VPN is installed on your computer, you turn it on by clicking the Connect button (shown below).
