Connecting from off campus

See a complete list of resources for online students.

If you access library resources from off campus, you'll need to sign in with your UA NetID and password. An alternative is to use UITS's Virtual Private Network (VPN), which is free for UA students and instructors to download. The VPN client provides a secure connection between your home computer, laptop, or mobile device and the UA network. To use the VPN client, you'll need to sign up for UA NetID+ Two-Factor Authentication, which provides another layer of security.

Can't connect? See Connecting to library resources for common problems and their solutions.

Pima County Public Library resources

Get a public library card!

The Pima County Public Library (PCPL) has a wealth of business-related information on its website. Some resources (like the useful Business Plans Handbooks) require a PCPL card for online access. Other resources, like business directories and business statistics and demographics, are free for anyone to access. To get a library card, visit any PCPL branch with your photo ID (the Joel D. Valdez Main Library and Himmel Park Library are closest to the UA campus). If your ID doesn't have your current address, bring along a piece of mail or a legal document with your name and current address on it. If you don't have a local address, they'll give you a limited card so that you can check out 2 items.
