We cannot use a VPN service or DoIT's Virtual Sinc Desktop to get access to the library's e-resources.  

The way to connect to library subscription resources from off campus is through searches on the library website and databases. When accessing a resource, you will be prompted to enter your NetID and password.

If you are not using the library website and databases, there is a work around by adding the proxy string  before the publisher's url or by adding the "SBU Libraries Proxy This" script by dragging the link to your browser’s bookmark bar.  Please see instructions in the section on "Troubleshooting Access Problems" under this "Remote Access to Online Resources" page
