VPN (Virtual Private Network)

Most library resources do not require the VPN (Virtual Private Network) for off-campus access, however, you can try logging in through the VPN if the options above are not successful or if help isn’t available.[1]

You may download and install the VPN by logging in here and opening “Connecting to Penn State”. Choose the VPN for your operating system and follow instructions. When logging in using the VPN, select LIAS VPN from the list of options.

The VPN is REQUIRED for off-campus access to the following resources:

  • BNA videos
  • Forrester Research
  • Siku Quanshu
  • East View LandScan Global
  • Streaming Audio Reserves
