VPN is a private network created between your computer or device and another computer or server. Log into VPN with your UARK username and password.

  3. Connect with your UARK username and password.
  4. Once you have an active VPN connection, you should be able to access most of our library databases, ejournals, and ebooks without any additional logins.
