A note about access
Case Western Reserve University students, faculty, and staff may access licensed ebooks via ethernet cable, Case Wireless, or VPN. If you are off campus or using Case's wireless network, you must have VPN installed, running, and logged in on your computer. The library homepage has a network connection status indicator at the bottom of the page. A green light means your campus network connection is active; a red light means you need to authenticate with VPN. For more information about VPN visit here: VPN.
IMPORTANT NOTE about access to library resources:
If your computer is not connected directly to the Case network via ethernet cable, you may authenticate using VPN. If you are off campus or using Case's Guest wireless, you must have VPN installed, running, and logged in on your computer.
The library homepage has a network connection status indicator in the lower left corner. A green light means your campus network connection is active, or a red light means you need to authenticate with VPN. The status indicator looks like this:
On campus, Case Wireless is the preferred network and does not require VPN. If you cannot connect or it is not working, Case Guest wireless with VPN is your other option.
