1) Accessing the Libraries' Digital Resources
If you start at this course research guide or the
Tripod library catalog for Haverford
or for Bryn Mawr, 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 (including your campus 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 @brynmawr.edu
) 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 your library subscribes.
B) Download VPN software from Campus IT Services
2. Borrowing Material that is not in Tripod and Remote Users' Requests for Digital Copies
