Tips to effectively use physics-related resources. See details at far right to contact or make an appointment with your physics librarian!

 

 

Remote access to resources

To access library resources from off-campus:

1. Recommended: establish a VPN link; see The basics of VPN at IU. UITS' technology Support Center can assist.

2. Then access a resource that you are interested in

OR:

1. Use a "library" link each time you need to access a resource.

2. Library links include proxy server code to "authenticate": log in to the library's server via an IU pop-up window, and use the resource.

*Technical notes: if a University Library tutorial does not download and start automatically:
  • On a pc: look for tiny icons in the upper right of the browser screen. Move your cursor over each icon or link to see see what these do. One should give you the option to open the tutorial via Adobe Reader. Internet Explorer may work better than Chrome or Mozilla Firefox.
  • On a mac: Safari may work better than Chrome or Firefox.
