When you are off-campus, you can still access millions of resources paid for by UCLA Library! These include e-books, articles, music, videos, and more! All you need to do is set up your computer for off-campus access to UCLA Library resources using a VPN (Virtual Private Network) or Proxy.
How does this work? Here's how four Bruins got their computers set up and ready to go for remote access!
"I chose VPN for my mac because I need to be able to access the full text of articles on different browsers." - Natalie, Environmental ScienceDownload a UCLA VPN for Mac
"I chose VPN because I like the security it provides and the control it gives me as a user to manually enable or disable it when I'm browsing online." - Michael, Public AffairsDownload a UCLA VPN for Windows
"I chose Proxy because I prefer logging in through a web browser without having to download any software on my computer." - Kate, Ethnic StudiesSet up a Proxy Server
"I chose VPN because it is really simple to use!" - Nadia, Public AffairsSet up a UCLA VPN for Chromebook
- Thanks to Zoe Borovsky for making this great handout!
