UC Berkeley Library

Connect from off campus

Content section: 

If you connect to the Internet through the UC Berkeley network (in a campus office, dorm, etc. or via AirBears2), you should be able to access all library resources. 

If you connect to the Internet through CalVisitor, you will not be able to access licensed library resources, use the Library Proxy Server, or use the campus VPN client to access licensed library resources.

If you are off campus, UC Berkeley students, faculty and staff may access UCB Only materials via:

  • Library Proxy Server
    Configure a browser or iOS device to access licensed article databases, eBooks and eJournals.

ALERT: A Microsoft patch issued in February, 2015 may lead to 'Failed to initialize connection subsystem' errors with AnyConnect VPN.
