The University of Richmond provides proxy server service which allows UR students, faculty and staff to connect to the Libraries' online databases through any internet provider service located off-campus. If you are a current student, staff or faculty member at the university and your username and password have been activated, you just need to enter this information when prompted to use a database.

Please note that access to full text articles through the LOCATE IT!  button within a library online database is sometimes not accessible through the proxy server. 

If you have difficulty accessing material through the LOCATE IT! button, off-campus users should connect to the university's Virtual Public Network (VPN). The VPN system allows secure access to networked resources from an off-campus location.
