About This Guide

This guide brings together resources from several other guides -- my hope is that it'll be easier to find the materials you need for researching social issues, industry and individual companies.  For more, please consult the guides linked below the table of contents area.

Immediately below are links to: 
  –   Instructions for off-campus access to library resources
  –   news sources for the city and area
  –   health data sources also for the area

Then there are some topic starting points for the topics I know about ...

Off campus access methods (authentication)

  • Library Login:  This method (a proxy server) is quick and easy, and requires no setup.  Just login before clicking on library links to databases. But a few databases will not work with it, and it is less reliable when there is heavy internet traffic or a slow connection.
  • VPN (virtual private network): The VPN requires you to download an app onto both your cell phone and your computer.  It is much more reliable during times of heavy internet traffic, and is well worth the necessary setup time. Outline of the steps required for the VPN:
    1. Find detailed VPN instructions from ITS here. Click on "How do I start using GlobalProtect VPN and Duo?"
    2. Register for Duo Mobile. Two ways to do that: via an email from ITS (; you can email and ask for "the VPN registration invitation email"); or if off-campus, via Office365.
    3. Download the Duo Mobile app onto your cell phone. Allow push notifications for it.
    4. Download the GlobalProtect app onto your computer.
    5. Complete GlobalProtect setup on your computer. (See step 3 instructions under "How do I start Using GlobalProtect VPN and Duo?"
