Please note that there may be network or browser issues when accessing resources.We expect this to be ongoing throughout the year as we transition individual publishers to Stockton one-by-one. This should be resolved by 2016. If you are having difficulty downloading a resource, please try the following:

  1. Try using the library guide with a different browser (Firefox is the preferred browser. We have received issues in Safari, Chrome and Internet Explorer)
  2. Try using a laptop over wifi or your home computer if errors occur on your desktop landline computers at work
  3. If you are trying to conduct research using Remote Desktop VPN and have issues, temporarily use a regular connection from home or access using Pacific off-campus login [click here]. Do not use VPN.
