For example, New England Journal of Medicine has some really helpful “videos in clinical medicine,” including:

Rafael Ortega, M.D., Nahid Bhadelia, M.D., Osamede Obanor, B.S., Kyle Cyr, M.A., Priscilla Yu, B.A., Maureen McMahon, R.N., and Dahlia Gotzmann, B.S.N.  N Engl J Med 2015; 372:e16March 19, 2015DOI: 10.1056/NEJMvcm1412105

The VPN Client is the recommended authentication approach for viewing these videos from off-campus.

Here are instructions about how to install the VPN Client:  http://lib.ucdavis.edu/ul/services/connect/

Note:  Installing the VPN Client requires installing Java as a first step.

Choose the VPN Client (Network Connect) if you:

  • Tend to use multiple windows and tabs in your browser
  • You often connect to PDFs which have URL links
  • You want to use the “Find Full Text” feature in EndNote
  • Use MyNCBI in PubMed
  • Rely on licensed resources not accessible via the Web VPN
  • Prefer uninterrupted access to licensed resources from your own computer
  • Prefer OS-level rather than browser-level access to licensed resources
