You have two options for accessing AU resources off-campus:
Log in via proxy service – see below
Establish a Virtual Private Network (VPN)
The library uses proxy service to provide access - you do NOT need to be connected to VPN to access library resources.
Begin on the library home page (www.lib.auburn.edu).
Click on a specific journal or database - you will be asked to log in.
Use your Auburn username and password to log in and then proceed as usual to search the journal or database.
Short for Virtual Private Network, VPN software makes it appear that you are on-campus, even if you are using an off-campus computer or AU Wireless. This is useful for resources that are limited to only on-campus use. It is also convenient for resources that require off-campus authentication, such as online journals and databases.
Palo Alto GlobalProtect VPN software is available only to Auburn University faculty, students, and staff.
An Auburn University User ID and OIT password are required to download and use the GlobalProtect VPN software. If you are faculty, staff, or student, and do not have an Auburn University User-ID, contact the Technology Hotline at (334) 844-4944. If you have forgotten your password, you will need to contact the OIT Service Desk.
