Connecting from Home
The University of Victoria Libraries subscribes to a variety of web-based resources (i.e. databases, e-journals, e-texts, etc.) that are licensed for the exclusive use of current UVic students, staff and faculty. You must have a current NetLink ID and password to access these resources.
Almost all of our web-based resources are now available via EZProxy. Simply connect via the Library web site and click on the electronic resource of your choice. Log in using your Netlink ID and Password.
However, a small number of our electronic resources do not work with EZproxy (for example, SciFinder Scholar). To access these from off campus it is necessary to use the campus VPN (virtual private network). For more information about VPN, and instructions on how to set it up, please see the VPN Service Overview.
