Accessing Stanford's Vast Resources from Off Campus

"A lot of the online journals I want to reference check IP domain to allow access or not. Since I’m not on Stanford’s network, they don’t recognize me and keep asking for credit card payments. Since I’m stingy and don’t want to pay but also lazy and like to work from home, is there any way for me to VPN or otherwise log onto the Stanford network first then browse from there? Thanks.- Craig"

A little sleuthing turned this up (and thanks to Craig who helped me, help him!)

1. Go to vpn.stanford.edu and download the vpn software for him to use. The installation process is pretty straight forward

2. Go to: http://library.stanford.edu/apcproxy/index.html and use the settings to access library stuff.
