Accessing Resources

1) Accessing the Libraries' Digital Resources when Off Campus
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
                    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
                   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

Haverford Libraries fulfill student, faculty, and staff requests for materials.  There are no charges for requests nor are there limits on the number of items you can submit.  You can use these forms below to enter your requests.  Articles and other digital material will be sent to your email address.  If you are on campus, you will be notified when print copies and other material are ready for you to come and check out.  If you are studying remotely, the libraries will supply digital copies and print material by mail.

Haverford on campus users can request materials using the Borrow beyond Trico page :          

Haverford remote users can request materials using these links below:

          Articles or Book Chapters
