VPN (Virtual Private Network)

Please use the UF Virtual private Network (VPN) to access online library materials.

About the UF VPN

The UF VPN Service is designed to allow University Faculty, Staff, and Students to securely “tunnel” into campus over other networks, such as their home internet connection, and access services as if they were on campus. It is ideal for using the UF Libraries resources from off-campus. If you are reading journal articles and searching library databases from home you’ll want to install the VPN.
