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.

  • VPN (Virtual Private Network)
    Download the campus VPN client to access licensed article databases, eBooks and eJournals.

    • Android devices should be configured to use the campus VPN client.

    • BrowZine for iOS and Android

    • These resources require VPN for off-campus use: ARTstor (Macintosh only), JSTOR (Mac OS X), Luna Insight, the java client in UC Image Service, Loeb Classical Library Online, and the Connect function in EndNote.

  • Conditions of Use and Licensing Restrictions for Electronic Resources
    It is the responsibility of individual users to ensure their use of electronic resources does not breach the terms and conditions specified in the license agreements.
