The University Libraries' Off Campus Sign In service now uses CAS (Central Authentication Service) just like ILLiad and numerous other online campus services.
Whenever you need to access library resources like articles, databases, ejournals, or ebooks while outside the campus network, look for the Off Campus Sign In button on any library web page, then login using your PID and password. If you have already signed in to CAS for another service, you'll automatically be logged into the service.
Artstor provides high quality images of visual media like paintings, photographs, architecture, sculpture, decorative arts, and other forms of visual culture. It provides tools to create, manage, and present collections of images. Prehistoric times-present.
While Artstor has traditionally supported academics in art history, architecture, and design fields, it has a breadth of content to support a range of disciplines.
Last spring, we removed access to library resources through the VPN to stay in compliance with contracts with these resources' vendors. Remote access to databases, ejournals, ebooks, and more was only available through Off Campus Sign In.
The university has now reconfigured the VPN so that everything is in full compliance with our licenses. The library has worked with publishers to reinstate VPN use.
This database is on trial through December 31, 2015. Henry Stewart Talks provides access to over 1,500 online seminar-style talks for biochemistry, cancer, neurobiology, genetics, and more. Each seminar talk includes options for linking or embedding, as a whole talk, or as one or more customized segments based on start/end times. Please provide feedback on this trial.
The University Libraries would like to welcome new students to Virginia Tech: freshmen, transfer students, and new graduate students. We have a lot of services and resources to offer you during your career here at Virginia Tech. Here are some tips and frequently asked questions (and answers!) for new students.
The library provides a range of services to support distance education students taking classes at a remote site or through an online class and to faculty who work outside Blacksburg (Graduate Centers, Extension offices, ARECs, Equine Medical Center, etc.). We strive to give these remote users a similar experience to our Blacksburg patrons.
Faculty have several options to have library materials delivered (not to mention the enormous amount of materials available online in your office, classroom, home, or travelling).
A wealth of academic information and data is published every day. Keeping up with all these new publications can be a daunting task. At one time, librarians regularly flipped through new journal issues, comparing contents against index cards submitted by faculty listing areas of interest and typing up bibliographies of potential matches. Now alerting services (also called current awareness services) can provide such lists automatically. Alerts can be sent from publishers, article-indexing databases, or third parties that combines these sources.
