Off Campus Access

Connecting to UF Library Resources from Off Campus

Off-campus access to eResources: restricted to UF students, faculty, and staff
UF Libraries purchase special licenses for electronic items such as eJournals and articles, eBooks, databases, and other digitally available materials, so off-campus access to these materials is limited to the students, faculty, and staff of the University of Florida.

CONNECTING FROM ON CAMPUS?
If you are connecting to the Internet from any UF network, you should be able to connect directly to our eResources.
CONNECTING FROM OFF CAMPUS?
If you are doing research from OFF campus (home, coffee shop, etc.) then you must login before you can access any of our electronic materials.
