Off-campus, VU and VUmc staff and students also have access to e-journals, e-books, online articles and databases for which the University Library (UL) has acquired a license.
If you are searching otherwise, you may use a link that is not (yet) off-campus enabled. In those cases you may receive a warning that your IP-address is unknown, a vendor’s login screen appears, or payment is required. Simply restore access to such a resource by installing - one time only - the bookmark below. Once installed, a simple click will provide the option to get access to the desired resource with your VUnetID or VUmc-account.
Add the link below to your browser’s bookmarks. Do not click, but drag the link to the bookmarks bar of the browser or right-click the link.

To test the installation of the bookmark, go to this article. Then click the UBVU Off-Campus Access bookmark and log in with VUnetID or VUmc-account.
Note! Due to technical reasons, access to some resources is restricted to VU and VUmc. Obviously access is only granted when the UL has acquired a license for that source.
