Accessing library resources from home
To connect to library resources such as databases and journals you will need to use the University’s VPN service called GlobalProtect. Advice on how to set your connection up can be found on the iSolutions page How do I set up VPN on my device?
If you use VPN on a Linux machine or mobile device, from June 17th 2020 you will need to reconfigure your device to point to 'globalprotect2.soton.ac.uk'. If you use a Windows PC or Mac you should continue to use 'globalprotect.soton.ac.uk'.
Off campus access
See our video for a short overview on accessing resources from off campus.
