We have found that occasionally faculty and staff with older laptops have some connectivity issues while using the employee VPN. The good folks in the TLC gave us a work-around and you can install the "Library VPN" which should allow you full access to our resources.
Instructions for the LIBRARY VPN. These are step-by-step instructions to add the "Library VPN" to your list of connections (for Windows 8, start with Launching the Fix-it Menu; for Windows 7, start on page 2).
If you need additional assistance with the VPN, please contact the TLC Helpdesk (firstname.lastname@example.org; 724.458.2255)
