Remote (Off-Campus) Access to Online Resources
ISI Off-Campus Access to online Journals, Databases, and e-Books:
Accessing licensed online resources (like journals, databases, and e-Books) from off-Campus doesn’t work as seamlessly as on-Campus because the online resources aren’t able to recognize that you are an ISI affiliated user. For example, going straight to download something from scopus (say, citation data) won’t give you relentless access, unless you authenticate 'you as a member of the ISI Library' (may be through official email-id: ...@isical.ac.in or something like VPN).
VPN (Virtual Private Network)
Installing a VPN client will allow you to securely connect to databases and other online resources from any off-campus location by routing your activity through the campus network. Once connected, the VPN client will let you operate in the same way you would if you were on campus.
