Access from Off-Campus

Two ways to access library resources from off-campus:

Proxy Server

  • Click on the link to any of our online resources from off-campus and you will be required to login with your PawPrint (myzou username and password).
  • If you experience any problem logging in, please go to Using the MU Libraries Proxy Server for troubleshooting tips.

Virtual Private Network (VPN)

  • If you regularly use library resources from off-campus from the same computer, you may want to consider using VPN instead.
  • The University of Missouri VPN system is available for free via DoIT. Install and use the VPN client here:

For troubleshooting tips see the Access to Library Resources page.  Get help with online access problems using the Report Problem with Online Access form.
