REMOTE ACCESS TO LIBRARY RESOURCES

  • Almost all purchased resources are accessible remotely and use IP authentication.
  • You must be a student, faculty or staff affilated with the OUHSC and be on the campus network to gain access to resources. 
  • If you are not on the campus network you will be prompted by the proxy server to login using your OUHSC credentials; this is necessary only once during a brower session and occurs the first time you access a restricted resource.   This makes you appear as though you're on the campus network when you're at remote location.
  • If you are connected to the campus network using the VPN you won't be prompted by the proxy.
  • For troubleshooting visit the Remote Access page.
