When off campus, use the Health Sciences Library website to link to restricted resources (eJournals, databases, etc.). You will automatically be redirected to a login screen for authentication of your UA status. Enter your NetID and password and you'll have access to all library resources for the duration of the browser session.
Alternatively, use the Health Sciences Library proxy bookmarklet if you link to restricted resources from sources other than the Health Sciences Library website. Download it to your computer browser or your iPhone, Android or iPad.
A third option is to install the UA VPN (Virtual Private Network) software on your off-campus computer. This allows you to connect to the University and immediately be recognized as a UA affiliate. The VPN also provides extra security by encrypting data to and from your computer.
Note: the VPN cannot be used to access UpToDate.
Go to the UA NetID webpage with the following information:
Preceptors and Community Faculty: If you are lacking any of the above information, contact your college/department. Be aware that most, but not all, library resources will be available to you from off campus. See Access to UpToDate.
Banner-UMC locations: As the transition proceeds, access to UA-licensed information resources will be restricted to UA affiliates within Banner-UMC (Tucson, South & clinics). See services for Banner-UMC.
Forgot your NetID or password? Reset it here. For all other problems with your UA NetID, contact the University Information Technology Services (UITS) help desk.
