About Off-Campus Access to E-Resources
Off-campus access to most library databases and e-joumals is available only to current LSU Health Shreveport students, faculty, and staff. Many of the Health Sciences Library and other institutional electronic resources are governed by license agreements with vendors.
The VPN (Virtual Private Network) is the method for accessing resources remotely.
For helpful hints on using the VPN on your laptop or home computer see this short PowerPoint in PDF form.
Additional information about the VPN
The VPN service creates a secure connection between your computer and the LSU Health Shreveport network.
While connected to the VPN, you will have access to the university's computing resources as if you were on campus. This includes access to many resources licensed by the library, such as online journals, books, and databases as well as some institutional systems related to patient care.
The VPN may only be used on a university-owned or personal computer belonging to current LSU Health Shreveport Affiliates.
Due to licensing restrictions UpToDate is NOT accessible through the VPN and is therefore not available off-campus.
LSU Health Shreveport Information Technology Group maintains access to the VPN. Contact them with any questions or problems with the VPN.
