Accessing TAMUG Subscribed Online Resources

Most of our online subscriptions use IP recognition to authenticate TAMUG faculty, staff, students, and any other authorized TAMUG-affiliated users. If you are on campus, you should be able to get into these resources seamlessly. However, there are special instructions for remote access (getting into TAMUG subscriptions from off campus) and for certain password-protected subscriptions.

Off-Campus Access

If you are off campus, you will need to log into the TAMUG Virtual Private Network (VPN), managed by Computing Information Services, in order to use certain IP-authenticated journals, databases, and websites. This requires users to download, install, and employ computer software called a VPN client. Please see their Remote Access page for instructions on setting up and using the VPN client.

College Station Access

TAMUG faculty and students with joint status at the main College Station campus can also log into the TAMU VPN and gain access to certain College Station subscriptions.

Some of our resources are password protected. You can view the list of passwords by logging into Howdy.
