Remote Students

Remote students have the same privileges as students who are on campus. There is access to library e-resources by using the UF VPN. Books and and articles can be delivered by regular (physical) mail and email. To request books and articles use Interlibrary loan (ILL). Remote students also have access to course reserves if the material is an electronic resource.

Remote students can ask questions about library resources, privileges and information research questions using the AskA Librarian. Through this service, librarians who work at UF, are available when class is in session to help however needed. Remote and distance learners are also encouraged to reach out to subject librarians (Laurel Kaminsky is your subject librarian) for help with the information research process. For more information about remote student privileges see the guide for Distance Learners and UF Online.


Connecting from Off Campus

In order to get access to electronic resources from the Libraries while you are off campus, you will need to install the Virtual Private Network (VPN) on your personal device (recommended) or  use the proxy server.

  • Visit the Off-Campus Access page on the Libraries website to find directions for both the VPN and proxy server options.
  • Connecting to the UF VPN provides secure access to the UF network as if you were using wifi on campus
  • Note: the UF VPN does not provide anonymous internet access - your online presence is still visible to UF. 

See the video below for more information on installing and using the Cisco AnyConnect VPN software:
