V., Vimal Kumar; K.C., Abdul Majeed

Abstract

Mahatma Gandhi University Central Library has established an SSH-based VPN (Virtual Private Network) service to share e-resources with off-campus libraries. The VPN service ensures seamless access to e-resources to the academic community at off-campus departments and Study Centre libraries. Extension of e-resources access to off-campus has increased the usage of electronic resources subscribed by the university. The article presents the first-hand experience of establishing Open Source based VPN service in a university environment.
