The Internet has brought a vast array of information to your desktop. The challenge for students is to identify the relevant sources, get to them easily, and critically evaluate their content. Some of the following websites are licensed for UC users only, others are open to all. Those that are licensed will not turn up in a Google search.
This guide will lead you to resources that can help you find material for your assignments. Remember that you can always ask a reference librarian for help.
Connect from Off-Campus or via Wireless On-Campus
Most of the links on these pages go to subscription sources which are accessible from any computer on campus. UCLA students, faculty, and staff can access these sites from off-campus using either the Bruin Online Proxy Server (a simple setting in your browser) or the UCLA VPN Client (a program you install on your computer).
To access restricted resources from your laptop on campus, use eduroam wireless network (secure data connection). If you encounter problems joining the Eduroam network, try the UCLA_WIFI wireless network (restricted, but unsecured).
[NOTE: If you are using a Mac, you may need to use Firefox, not Safari, to read some of the pdf material.]
