The UCI Libraries are proud to offer campus-wide access to The Orange County Register.

https://www.ocregister.com/

Access to The Orange County Register is simple.

1. Make sure you are connected to the VPN (UCIFull).

2. Go to Media News Group Access. (If you get stuck on a "loading message" you probably aren't connected to the VPN.)

3. Next to your Organization - It should say "University of California, Irvine"

4. From the drop down menu, select "Orange County Register" or any of the 11 SCNG newspapers (titles listed in the box below) you want to read.

THAT'S IT. YOU DO NOT NEED A PIN. YOU DO NOT NEED TO LOG IN ON THE NEWSPAPER WEBSITE EITHER.
You now have access to an unlimited number of articles from the Orange County Register.

Additional sites as part of license

In addition to the Orange County Register, the UCI Libraries' license provides UCI access to the following sites and publications.

Note: All of these websites, including the Orange County Register, are the live, current website. Some articles from the past may be included, but these sites are not historical archives.
