Access to the Library's databases, e-journals, and e-books is easily available to current UO students, faculty and staff. 
Below are the two access options.  We recommend installing the VPN Software for its ease of use and reliability.
More about the campus VPN (Virtual Private Networking) software.

1. Install Campus VPN Software - recommended

The campus VPN connects your computer to the campus network from anywhere you have internet access. 
Just log in with your DuckID. 

IMPORTANT: Sign into your LibrarySearch account if your VPN session will include searches for online articles, e-books, or 
other library-licensed materials. Search results are customized and access expanded based on your UO affiliation. By signing in, 
you will also be able to see items you have checked out or ready for pickup, and save items and searches to use in the future.

2. Login with Your DuckID (library proxy server)

If the VPN software doesn't work with your computer or network, follow the instructions below.

  • When you click on a database, e-journal or e-book, you will see a Login with your DuckID button.
  • Enter your DuckID and DuckID password.

Get help using the UO Libraries proxy service.
