Off-Campus Access to Library Resources
Digital information resources are licensed by the Dartmouth College Library for affiliated users. Authentication is generally tied to your computer's IP (network) address. The best solution for off-campus users is a Virtual Private Network (VPN), which creates a secure network connection between your computer and the Dartmouth or DHMC network.
