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. All campus wireless networks (eduroam, UCLA_WIFI, or UCLA_WEB) provide access to online subscription content.

UCLA students, faculty, and staff can access these sites from off-campus using either the UCLA VPN Client (a program you install on your computer) or Bruin Online Proxy Server (a simple setting in your browser). To set up an iPAD, follow the instructions for the iPhone. You can also get access through UCLA mobile. Off-campus access will require Multi-Factor Authentication in addition to a Bruin ID and Password. If you need help setting up your computer, contact the UCLA IT Support Center at (310) 267-4357 or help@it.ucla.edu . They answer the phone 24/7 and are very helpful.

[NOTE: If you are using a Mac, you may need to use Chrome or Firefox, not Safari, to read some of the pdf material.]

To Google or not to Google?

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.

Bibliographic Management Tools

EndNote and Zotero are bibliographic management programs that will help you organize your references and create bibliographies in 100s of citation styles (e.g., APA, MLA, Chicago, Turabian, etc.)

An EndNote license can be purchased at the UCLA Store for downloading onto your own computer or you can use the web-based EndNote Basic at no cost. The EndNote and EndNote Basic or Zotero research guides have much more information about using these tools.
