You can access library resources from any location using your CWL

Remote access to library workstations

A select number of UBC Vancouver and UBC Okanagan Library public workstations and lab computers (Mac and PC) are available for use by remote access using RemoteLabs. If you are studying off campus and you need access to software such as Adobe Acrobat Pro or SPSS, this may be a good option. Log in at the RemoteLabs link above, and you will find a handy listing of the computers that are available for remote access. A listing of the software that is available on each workstation is available. Take a few minutes to read through the user guides and best practices for students or for faculty.
