Connect from Off Campus
Only current UC Davis students, faculty, and employees may access our licensed resources from off campus.
Anyone may access the Harvest UC Davis Library catalog, Melvyl catalog, and free resources.
Your computer does not have a campus network address, and you are not able to access licensed resources. If you are currently affiliated with UC Davis, follow the directions below to use the VPN or set up proxy server. Proxy service is needed. Continue reading.
Two ways to connect from off campus
Choose the VPN if you have a private internet service provider (using dial-up or cable modem, DSL, ISDN, or home wireless network). This is the preferred choice for accessing restricted resources.
2. PROXY SERVER:
Choose the Proxy Server if you have a private internet service provider (using dial-up or cable modem, DSL, ISDN, or home wireless network). This is option should be used if the VPN does not work for you.
Connecting On Campus:
On-campus locations already have access to library resources. It may not be necessary to use the VPN or proxy server to access library resources from these locations:
- Campus offices
- Campus computer networks (including Open Access Labs)
- UC Davis offices located off campus
