Want to pursue interests outside of class? Looking for a break from your work?  Library staff have started this list of resources for you to explore.  Everything is ready to use virtually, whether you are on campus, living in Ardmore or in Istanbul.  These resources draw you into new places, new ideas and new ways to express yourself.

Some of the resources on these pages are available through subscriptions paid by the Haverford libraries.  Use the letter H icon to connect.  If you are off campus when you choose a link, you will be prompted to log into the library proxy for authentication.  If you want to authenticate first thing, you have two options:   Option A  takes you directly to the library proxy page where you can login.  

If you plan to work in-depth with library resources, use VPN software (Option B).  Once you authenticate, you can then connect to resources (with Haverford subscriptions) on the open Web as well as use URLS you have already saved or those sent by faculty and librarians.  

   A) Off-campus Access through Tripod

Use your email user name (no and password to log on.  You will need to navigate through Tripod, rather than typing URLs in the search box for your entire session.  The proxy prefix has to remain in your URL in order to access digital materials to which Haverford subscribes.

   B) Download VPN software from Campus IT Services

When you log into VPN with your email user name (do not add @ brynmawr or and password, all the subscriptions in Tripod will work even when you go through the Web rather than Tripod.  It is simpler to do in-depth research with VPN rather than the library proxy.
