Due to security concerns and in order to be in full compliance with our license agreements, the UBC Library is now requiring off-campus patrons to use EZproxy for authentication & access to online resources. You can read the official statement here.

But I wanted to add a word of clarity about myVPN for staff and faculty. myVPN still exists (it is managed by UBC IT). It will no longer be usable for directly accessing online resources (as we will no longer send the IPs for myVPN to our resource Providers); however, if you have a workstation on campus you can still use myVPN to remote desktop your workstation from home and access online resources then from your workstation.

Hope that clears up any confusion.

A research study conducted by a professor in UBC’s Faculty of Education in collaboration with UC-Riverside has found that when children engage in small acts of kindness they experience a surge in happiness, and this may help to decrease bullying.
