The Library's online subscription resources (databases, electronic journals, or e-books) can always be accessed from computers and wireless networks on campus. However, our license agreements restrict off-campus access to current UCLA students, faculty, and staff who have set up their computer using one of the following methods.
- Proxy Server: A setting in your web browser which automatically diverts you to a UCLA logon page whenever you access a site UCLA subscribes to.
- Virtual Private Networking (VPN): A program you can download and install. When you logon with the VPN software, you'll have access. Note: This option is required for Endnote or other programs which work outside your web browser.
- VPN for Mobile Devices: Configuration instructions to use the built-in VPN clients on most mobile devices.
Students and staff associated with certain professional schools should use the following connection methods which provide access to additional resources.
- Mednet VPN: Download, installation, and configurations of the VPN client for mednet users. Note: Users from the West Los Angeles VA need to use the VPN client to access library resources from off-campus. The VA national network does not allow proxy server access.
- Law School Student VPN
- UCLA Anderson Proxy Server
Please contact Bruin OnLine technical support if you have any problems setting up or using the proxy server or VPN.
