Use the UF VPN Service
If you don't have VPN software on your computer, use your Gatorlink ID.
If you don't have a Gatorlink account or your Gatorlink ID doesn't work, use your 14-digit library card number (located under the barcode on your Gator-1 card), or your 8 Digit UFID Number (include dash).
UFID or Library Number
Connecting From Off-Campus
Off-Campus access to library-licensed e-Journals, research databases and e-resources is limited to current UF students, staff, and faculty.
Virtual Private Network
Setting up the UF VPN is recommended if you are connecting from off-campus since it provides the smoothest and most secure way to access the UF Libraries e-resources.

- Enter your account username or number with password and click the Login button.
