ARCH 492/592: Environmental Controls Systems II

Research guide for ARCH 4/592.

*This guide was created for a spring 2021 course. For the most recent information from UO Libraries, see the UO Libraries homepage.

​Use LibrarySearch to search broadly across our physical and electronic library collections, or strategically search in the databases listed throughout this guide.

Connect to the UO Network from Off Campus

1. Library Proxy Service

Links on library webpages (including  in LibrarySearch, Browzine, and Databases A-Z) run through a proxy server which verifies you are a UO member, and are eligible to access library materials. When you click on a proxied link for the first time in the session, you are prompted to enter your DuckID and password to access the resource.

2. VPN (Virtual Private Network) Service

For certain library resources, using the UO's VPN service will be necessary.  VPN is not necessary for Canvas or LibrarySearch access.

If the proxied links or bookmarklet aren't working for you, the VPN lets you join the UO's network from off-campus. Using the VPN slows your internet speed, so only connect when you need to access resources, and disconnect once you're done.
