Access to UA Libraries electronic resources on campus is straightforward; computers on the network are recognized as UA affiliated and are permitted access. Off-campus access is easy too. After you enter the UA Libraries Web site, you may be asked to authenticate. This is done simply by executing a login with your myBama ID and password. Once this is completed you are ready to search, read, and download electronic resources.
Use of UA VPN for off-campus access to library resources isn’t necessary, so this approach is not recommended.
