Writing Program 162: Immigration and Representation (Ladva) Spring 2020

Using Resources When off Campus

1) Accessing the Libraries' Digital Resources
If you start at this course research guide or the Tripod library catalog, you will be prompted to sign in and authenticate through the Off-campus Access page (Option A below) when you click on an online resource link .
If you plan to work in-depth on a research paper when you are off campus, 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 IITS
When you log into VPN with your email user name (do not add 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. 
2.  Requesting Resources that are not Available Online in Tripod

Over the next several weeks, the Libraries will fulfill Haverford student, faculty, and staff requests for materials by providing digital copies of items.  Use this form linked from the libraries' homepage to request the titles you need.
