New VPN must be installed by August 12

The UC Berkeley is changing its VPN (Virtual Private Network) service. Current VPN users should download and install the new VPN client software by August 12.

The new VPN client, called AnyConnect, includes a "Library VPN" option. As before, you need to run the VPN software before accessing licensed library resources, and turn it off when your session is over. For details and installation instructions, see the UCB library VPN page .

If you are using the VPN just to access SciFinder, you might want to try the web version of SciFinder that is accessible through the library proxy server. In order to use the web version, you must both register and configure your web browser to access the library proxy server.

Accessing AIP and AVS journals from IEEE Xplore

Last week, IEEE announced a partnership with the American Institute of Physics (AIP) and the AVS to include five of their applied physics journals in IEEE Xplore.

Please note that UC Berkeley library users have access to the full-text of these journals on AIP Scitation, not IEEE Xplore. If you find one of these articles on IEEE Xplore, use the UC-eLinks button or DOI link to access the full-text on AIP Scitation.
