Research

Connect From Home (or wherever summer vacation takes you)

Summer vacation is here which means that cadets and faculty are traveling, studying and researching all over the world.

Living in a Lexington apartment instead of Barracks?
Researching at an archive in Germany?
Still want access to all of our great databases?

You got it!

1st: Visit our Off-Post Access page for the full details.

2nd: Click on the Preston Library Off-Post Access link.  You should be directed to a screen that looks like this:

3rd: Click the MetaFrame link at the bottom of the screen. (You’ll only have to download this plug-in the first time you connect from Off-Post.)

4th: In the box on the left. Log-In with your VMI email user name and password.

5th: Click on the Library Resources Web Page Icon. This opens a new Internet Explorer window where you’ll be able to search the database just like you were on Post.

Have a great summer!

And remember:

No matter where your research takes you, Preston Library’s always here to help!

If you have more questions just Ask A Librarian.  We’re online most business days.
