Off-campus Access to Library Resources

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 non-web browser programs which don't have proxy settings.  
  • 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.
  • VPN for Mobile Devices: Configuration instructions to use the built-in VPN clients on most mobile devices.  

Special access is not required to use the UCLA Library Web site, the UCLA Library Catalog, or Melvyl.

Please contact Bruin OnLine technical support if you have any problems setting up or using the proxy server or VPN.
