The Cluster 72 research guide contains library resources supporting the Sex: From Biology to Gendered Society Cluster. Your contacts from the UCLA Library are listed in the left-hand column of this page. You can ask us questions about the Library, the cluster program, research, campus resources, and more. We're here to help!
You'll find information below about the Library and how to connect to resources when working off-campus (Hint: VPN is your friend, even when searching Google Scholar). You can use the tabs on the left-hand site to find links to resources by type (books, articles) and learn more about your Peer Writing & Research Specialist, a student who has participated in the cluster in previous years and is available to share their experience.
The Library's online subscription resources can always be accessed from computers and wireless networks on campus. However, off-campus access is restricted to current UCLA, students, faculty, and staff who have set up their computer using one of the methods below. Click on the other tabs to see how four Bruins got their computers set up and ready to go for remote access!
If you still need help, you can contact the UCLA IT Support Center at (310) 267-4357 or email@example.com. They provide 24/7 phone support.

"I chose VPN because it is really simple to use!" - Nadia, Public Affairs
