CEE 420, Professor Kinner, Fall 2020 (UNH Durham): Get Started

Support for successful stream source searches. And other things.

Getting Started, for CEE 420

Welcome!

As environmental engineers, your ability to find, evaluate, use, and contribute information effectively is a vital professional and personal asset.   You've been doing it all your life and can build on this experience to develop your academic and professional knowledge and skills.  The objective of this session is for you to learn about the resources of the UNH Library that support your ability to do exactly that, and for you to incorporate these resources into your research and work habits. 

I hope to be able to help you this year and throughout your time at UNH.  Even as alumni, you can contact us!

To Go: Off-Campus Access to UNH Library Resources

Most online UNH Library resources are only accessible to UNH Durham & UNH-Manchester students, faculty, staff, and on-campus visitors.

When you are on campus, you do not have to do anything special to use most online library resources; just access them through the library's website.  From off-campus, there are two ways to access the online resources:

   1.  Start your search on the UNH Library website.  Our links for online resources, including databases, e-books, e-journals, streaming videos, and music, are customized to prompt for a UNH ID and password for authentication when the system detects that your device is off-campus..

    2. Another way to authenticate your status as a UNH Wildcat is to install UNH VPN with the special all_traffic configuration on your computer or VPN-compatible device (library VPN instructions).  When you connect, this gives your computer an "on-campus" IP address and the all_traffic connection allows library resources to flow through the campus network to you.

If you have trouble connecting, check your network connection and/or try a different browser.  If there is still a problem, contact me or library staff, or fill out the online library access problem report.
