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.
