None of the Library digital resources - ebooks, ejournals, databases, or primary sources use VPN for access.
With the old VPN - once it was turned on - it acted as if you were on campus and when you went to a journal directly - e.g. www.sciencedirect.com - it would let you see the subscribed content. The new one - that does not happen.
The new VPN does not send all traffic across the network so even though it is turned on, it will not provide access to the Libraries' content.
