VPN for iPad now available

iPad users can now use a Virtual Private Network (VPN) app to access journal article databases and other licensed resources from off campus.

This is the only only way to access licensed resources through the iPad's cellular (3G or 4G) connections.

Proxy server changes affect some users

On Tuesday April 24, the library made major changes to its proxy server, used for off-campus access to journal article databases and other licensed electronic resources.  These changes improve efficiency and security, and also simplify setup requirements in most cases.

Most users will see no changes, and your existing set-up should continue to work. However, the new proxy server does have new requirements related to cookies and changes to the Patron/PIN login method.

For more information, see this FAQ item: 
The proxy server has changed - how and why?
