  • You will no longer be able to access resources that require you to authenticate. These resources are marked as Access: Current UCI Affiliates.
     
  • You will still be able to access many of the Libraries’ resources from a computer on the UCI Campus in accordance with our usage policy. These resources are marked as Access: UCI.
