Virtual Private networking (VPN)
Gad & Birgit Rausing Library has successfully implemented the VPN to facilitate off campus access to library e-resources. VPN allows you to make a secure, encrypted connection to the University network. When you have started the VPN client, a secure 'tunnel' is created between your computer and the University network. The LUMS VPN server will now serve as the primary authentication method for all current LUMS students, faculty, and external members for off-campus access to licensed library resources.
