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.
