Academic health science library users, like students and faculty, often bring their work home with them and need to access the library remotely to do their work. Library resources are easily accessible with a UVM NetID by clicking on the “Connect From Off-Campus” button on Dana’s homepage. Here is how you can gain access:
You will be prompted to log in with your UVM NetID. Once you’ve logged in, you’ll return to the Dana Medical Library homepage, but with one small change – the URL should now include the words “ezproxy.uvm.edu.” EZproxy is a service that lets websites know that you are coming from UVM and can get access to the resources we subscribe to. Now, you’ll be able to access library resources like databases, ejournals and ebooks. Want a visual guide to this process? Check out our tutorial video.
Not sure what you are looking for or need more help? Dana Medical Library also offers Research Guides and Tutorials that you can view from anywhere, anytime. See our full list of Research Guides in different subject areas to get started. If you need help using PubMed, CINAHL, or Endnote, we have a guide specifically for tutorials. Keep in mind that as long as the library is open, you can talk to us virtually via chat or give us a call!
