"Remote Access" to resources from anywhere, any time

Most library resources are "IP-filtered". When off the campus network, use one of the 3 methods listed below to access a resource. Smart phones can be used to access resources, but typically require a "remote access" strategy such as using a library link (with proxy code) even on campus.

 

1. Set up a VPN link; see The basics of VPN at IU

 

2. Once you are using a VPN link, you can use your previously saved bookmark to the resource. In some cases, you can access a resource directly via an Internet search. Campus computer technology (UITS) Support Center staff can assist.  

        OR:

1. Use a "library" link to access a resource. This is required for the Books24x7 ITPro ebooks system.

2. a . If you know the resource database name, from the library homepage, follow links "Find Articles & More" to the "Databases A - Z" alphabetical lists of links. Find the appropriate letter list and scroll down to find the link.  

2. b. To explore database options by subject, follow links "Guides to Research" to "Subject Guides". E&T program subject guides are linked under "Engineering & Technology". Access your program guide and then use either the upper red "articles" tab for article databases or upper red "books" tab for IUCAT or individual ebook resource links.

3. Library links have proxy code to "authenticate"; log in to IU pop-up window.

OR:

1. Set up a secure Citrix Receiver link on mobile devices to browse resources directly & run IUanyWare software virtually. 

2. Run browser software through IUanyWare. Access resources via an Internet search or the library website.
