There are several ways to connect to the libraries' online books, journals, and databases from off-Grounds:
|Library Website||UVA Anywhere VPN||LibKey Nomad Plugin|
Starting on the library's website invokes the "proxy server" which will allow you to login with your UVA credentials to get to our resources.
UVA Information Technology Services provides VPN technology to give authorized UVA users (including students) secure, authenticated access to restricted resources, some of which are limited to on-Grounds use.
LibKey Nomad is a browser extension that offers links to PDFs while browsing certain pages such as PubMed, WOS, publisher websites, and Wikipedia.
Install LibKey Nomad and you'll get a "Provided by University of Virginia" button on articles. Click to get to the full PDF.
If LibKey Nomad can not find the article, you will be brought to a page where you can select to submit the citation to our Interlibrary Loan Service (ILL). All the information will automatically populate in the ILL form.
These sources review other materials, mostly journal articles, to provide a synthesized account of the best literature on a topic. Often a good starting point for your research.
These interfaces allow you to search collections of library databases at once.
