Access to Library Resources & About the VPN

Due to our agreements with the vendors and publishers, the library can only make those resources available to students and faculty at UC Merced on the campus network.  Fortunately, as a student, you can access the campus network whether you are on or off campus. 

When you are on campus, access to most resources does not require any special authentication. But for access from off-campus locations, connect through the Virtual Private Network (VPN) first. 

To Do: Watch this video (1:59) for more information on the VPN.
