Accessing Faculty of 1000 from Off-Campus

Several of you have let me know that you're having a difficult time accessing Faculty of 1000 from home.
http://www.library.uiuc.edu/orr/get.php?instid=226365
The situation is pretty weird...

Pretty strange, hey?

There is an alternative!
Use CITES' Virtual Private Networking (VPN) to establish a connection to the University, and to authenticate yourself as a UIUC affiliate. When you use VPN to access resources from off-campus, it's as if your computer were physically located on campus!
Caveat: for VPN to work properly with library resources, you must use the library profile. Read more about VPN, and download the client; be sure to also download the Library profile. When you use the VPN + Library profile, you'll be able to get into F1000 from off-campus, whether you've previously registered with F1000 on campus, or not. (Of course you'll still need to authenticate yourself when you start up the VPN client.)

-------
Of local interest, I thought you'd be interested to know that UIUC is well represented amongst the nearly 2000 faculty who have been chosen to be evaluators in F1000! Click on the links below to see what they've been recommending!

ps.. I generated this list by clicking on the "Faculty Member List" link, and searching for "Illinois" in the "by institution" search bar.
