Connect to Dana Library Resources From Off Campus

The use of many library resources from off-campus is restricted to University of Vermont students, faculty, and staff and FAHC employees.

Remote access methods vary depending on your affiliation:

UVM faculty, students and staff

UVM faculty, students and staff can choose between EZProxy access or VPN access. Both methods require the activation of your UVM Network ID (UVM NetID). For more help see Find Your NetID and Password. Phone 656-4415 or e-mail Donna O'Malley with questions.

1. EZProxy
This option does not require the installation of software. Logon using your UVM NetID and password. After logging on you will be redirected to the Dana Library home page. Follow links through this page to access resources restricted to UVM and FAHC users. See EZProxy in action.

2. VPN
This option requires installing software on your computer. In addition to allowing access to library resources from off campus, VPN will also allow access to University of Vermont campus servers. Check with your department for details. Cisco AnyConnect VPN client installation and use is initiated through your web browser. Go to sslvpn.uvm.edu and sign in with your UVM NetID and password.
