Connect to Databases, Journals and eBooks from Off Campus

How To

  1. Click on Connect from off campus near the top of any Dana Library web page. This link will not be visible when you are on campus.
  2. Use your UVM NetID account to log in. When you have logged in successfully, you will see the Dana Library page without the Connect from Off Campus link near the top of the page (video).
  3. You can now click on Dana website links to access databases, journals, and ebooks.
