Using the Library

If you do your research away from campus, you may wish to connect through the VPN. The VPN software makes it appear as though you are accessing the Library's subscription resources from on campus, thus reducing the need to log in to each subscription database.

NOTE: Some of our databases require a VPN connection. Those databases are identified with this icon: VPN Only Icon

 

Problems with the VPN software should be referred to OIT, the Office of Information Technology. Walk-in computer support hours and locations are here.

 

In addition to books and periodicals in print, CU provides access to a huge number of subscription websites, article databases, and ebooks. Finding these resources can be tricky. If you need a refresher on how to find books, journals, articles, or data owned by the Library, see the "How do I...?" pages.

 

Of course you will search the Internet or newspapers for general information, but limiting your search to freely-available sources alone may significantly impact your understanding of the big picture.
