Access Resources Off Campus


Browser Extensions for Off-Campus Access

Most library resources are accessible seamlessly through the VPN when you are off campus. If you are off campus and not connected to the VPN, you can use the following options to gain access to the Libraries collection.


If you attempt to access library resources from off campus through Google, a bookmark, or a shared URL, you may not be recognized as a member of the University of Colorado. If this occurs, follow these instructions for installing a browser extension. And, with the click of a button, the extension will send you to an authentication page.
