VPN system changing August 12

The UC Berkeley is changing its VPN (Virtual Private Network) service.  All current VPN users will need to download and install the new VPN client software by August 12.

VPN is an alternative to the proxy server for off-campus access to journal article databases and other licensed library resources, and is required for some non-web-based resources.  The new VPN client, called AnyConnect, includes a "Library VPN" option.  As before, you need to run the VPN software before accessing licensed library resources, and turn it off when your session is over. 

For details and installation instructions, see our VPN page.
