East Asian Information Literacy

The East Asian Information Literacy project is a series of short tutorials to contextualize Information Literacy concepts in the field of East Asian studies. The tutorials can help improve research skills through efficient searches and discovering and utilizing subject-specific resources. 

Off-campus Access for Library Subscribed Resources

Many e-resources are available only to UCSB students, faculty, and staff from off campus. In order to use our many research databases from off campus, you will need to use either the proxy server or the Virtual Private Network (VPN). (Note: Some databases only work with VPN.) 

Please contact ( directly for any VPN questions, troubleshooting, and support.
