Off-Campus Access Tips

  • Logging in with your UCF NID for seamless access to all UCF Libraries content and services.
  • Use links on the Libraries website. Our links connect through OpenAthens and ask you to log in as needed.
  • Add the OpenAthens stem to Google search results, email, and other pages – they do not automatically not connect through EZproxy and you may end up at a site asking for a payment or an individual subscription.
  • Use a plug-in in Chrome or Firefox to send links through EZproxy for authorized access.
  • If you use VPN, you will still need to login to OpenAthens to access library content. For security reasons, UCF’s VPN does not handle traffic to sites outside of UCF’s domain.
