Health Sciences


This resource guide is designed for undergraduate students in the health sciences. If that is you, I am your librarian.

Do you have questions about research? Please contact me, and I'll be happy to help you. My contact information is on the left side of this page.

Use this guide to find articles, books, videos, and career resources for your health sciences classes.

Off-Campus Access to Library Resources

Most library resources are IP-restricted. This means that, while on-campus, you can connect to any resource; but if you are off-campus you won't. Luckily, there are multiple ways to access library resources while off-campus.

  1. Connect to resources like databases and journal articles from the library's web page. Once you click on a database or e-journal link, there will be a pop-up screen where you log-in to authenticate yourself as being affiliated with IUPUI. As long as you keep your browser window open, you should not have to re-authenticate.
  2. Set up a VPN link. For the most reliable connections across the widest range of platforms and network configurations, UITS recommends connecting to the VPN with the Pulse Secure SSL VPN client. The benefit to this method is that as long as you are logged in, you can open and close browser windows just as you would on-campus.
  3. Set up a secure Citrix receiver link on mobile devices to browse resources directly and run IUanyWare Software virtually.
