Off-Campus Access to Library Databases
Due to subscription and licensing agreements, certain library resources are restricted to UC faculty, staff, and currently enrolled students.
If you are a currently enrolled student, UC faculty, or staff member and are trying to access restricted library materials from off campus or otherwise outside the campus network, you must use either the login for off campus access or the UC VPN.
For additional information about UC VPN, please see the Frequently Asked Questions page.
