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
                    Bryn Mawr  https://login.proxy.brynmawr.edu/login
                    Haverford  https://ezproxy.haverford.edu/login
Use your email user name (no @haverford.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 Haverford subscribes.

   B) Download VPN software from Campus IT Services
                   Bryn Mawr  https://techdocs.blogs.brynmawr.edu/1019   Go to Using the VPN with personal computers (Windows) or Using the VPN with Apple computers
                   Haverford:  https://iitskb.sites.haverford.edu/knowledge-base/installing-the-vpn-client/
When you log into VPN with your email user name (do not add @ brynmawr or haverford.edu) 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

Bryn Mawr users can request journal articles and essays through the Articles and Interlibrary Loan Services on this page.

They can request online materials using the form on this page

Haverford Libraries will fulfill student, faculty, and staff requests for materials by providing digital copies of items when possible.  Use these forms linked from Tripod and the libraries' homepage to request the titles you need:

          Books or DVDs

 

3.  Accessing Resources Made Freely available by Publishers

              Haverford:  Free Access during Covid-19

Librarians are updating these lists regularly as more resources become available.
