Off Campus Access to Library Materials

IUP Libraries offer access to hundreds of books in electronic format and thousands of journal articles. Most can be accessed from off-campus. The easiest way to access the library's electronic material from off-campus is by setting up your computer to connect to the University VPN server. When you connect to IUP’s VPN from your computer, your computer “looks” like it is on-campus and therefore you have access to all the library's electronic resources. Instructions to setting up the VPN can be found on can be found on the IUP Information Technology website.
