Accessing Library Databases from Off-Campus

Remote Access Through KLN PASS

IUP Libraries subscribe  to our databases from vendors who require us to limit access to IUP users only. If you attempt to access databases from on-campus, they recognize your connection with the University. If you try to access databases from home,you will probably be directed to a login screen (unless you have the VPN set up)

To log into databases, you can use your single-sign on information, the same way you log into MyIUP or D2L. 

Remote Access through the Virtual Private Network

Virtual Private Network


•      VPN

–      The virtual private network (VPN) uses the Internet to provide remote offices or individual users with secure access to the university’s network.  Users can use all databases remotely, even those that say On Campus Only.
