Get Library Access From Off-Campus

When you’re off campus, online books and articles don’t know that you are a UCSC student or faculty member eligible to access those materials.

Quick options for getting access when you’re off campus:

Nomad Browser Extension for Quick Access

Download the Nomad browser extension for Chrome or Firefox to get quick access to online articles and books!

Nomad will tell you if you have access through the UCSC Library and provide a link where you can log in to get the full-text.
