Go to http://access.yale.edu through your Web browser and follow the installation prompts. Yale VPN uses university NetID authentication so it is NOT an option for hospital employees without a university NetID. VPN (Virtual Private Networking) provides a secure method of accessing restricted resources on the Yale University network as well as providing remote access to Web-based Library resources.
Need help? ITS HELP desk: 203-432-9000 or Walk-in Computer Support Center (one located on the lower level of the Cushing/Whitney Medical Library). Additional information can be found on the ITS Yale VPN page.
Multifactor Authentication (MFA)

Information about our proxy server here: Medical Library Proxy Server
The Medical Library maintains a proxy server that may be used by faculty, students and staff of the Yale School of Medicine AND by employees and affiliates of Yale-New Haven Hospital. While most users should use the Cisco AnyConnect VPN for remote access, there are cases where the proxy server may be the method of choice even for Yale University faculty, staff and students.
