Summer Bridge 2020: Installing the VPN (Virtual Private Network)

An introduction to the library and its services and resources for the 2020 Summer Bridge program

VPN Basics

The VPN (Virtual Private Network) allows you to connect to Library resources from off-campus. With the VPN, you can access:

  • journal articles
  • newspaper / magazine articles
  • ebooks
  • ....and more

The resources on this page will help you install and use the VPN.

Deep Web

The "deep web" includes database materials like library resources. You can only access deep web resources if you have authenticated with a library VPN or proxy.
