Authentication for Library Electronic Resources & Services

Access to electronic databases, electronic journals, and other electronic information licensed by the UO Libraries and services, such as Summit, are available only to current UO students, faculty and staff.

UO students, faculty and staff with DuckIDs have two options:
  • Login with the Client VPN (Virtual Private Network) software
    This software connects you to the campus network, allowing you to authenticate one time for access to all library resources and other campus computer resources as long as you remain logged in. To use the Client VPN, you will need to download and install a small application. If you have already downloaded the Client VPN software it will be listed as Cisco AnyConnect in your Programs or Applications.
  • Login to the library's proxy server with your DuckID and password
    This method will only provide access to the library's databases, electronic journals and other electronic services. Libproxy does have a time-out feature. You may need to reconnect after 120 minutes of use.
