Accessing UCLA Library Services Remotely

For those of us who are frustrated because they cannot log in remotely to UCLA's electronic journals, the following is a step by step guide on how to do so.

1. Go to UCLA's Library Computing Off Campus Website
2. Click on Bruin Online (BOL) proxy server
3. Get the Cisco VPN client by clicking on the link in the center of the page
4. Select your supported operating system
5. Install Cisco VPN!

Once you have the Cisco VPN, all scholarly journals (PsychInfo, Lexis Nexis, etc.) can be found on UCLA's Library Article Database website.
