Electronic resources licensed by the Health Sciences Libraries and the USC Libraries are available only to USC faculty, staff, and students. Most resources verify your USC affiliation through your IP address.
Check your IP address at http://www.whatismyip.com to determine if you are connecting through a USC address. Anyone with an address beginning with 128.125 or 68.181 should be able to connect to USC resources directly without problems.
If you are located away from a campus connection, e.g., at home, in some other location away from the USC network or using USC wireless, the USCnet login page should appear when you click on any restricted resource when you start on the Wilson Library website. Simply enter your USC computer account username and password to establish yourself as a valid USC user. You should only need to do this once until you close your browser window or unless you leave your computer idle for more than 90 minutes.
PLEASE NOTE: VPN is no longer used to access online library resources because of increased VPN traffic by unauthorized users. In some rare instances VPN access may be required for other applications outside of the Library’s domain. For example, some Axium users need VPN; if these users are running VPN and then try to move to library resources they will be told that it is necessary to discontinue the VPN connection. After doing so they should then be able to access library resources.
