Answer

If you are off campus and are having difficulty accessing the Library's databases and other licensed resources like eBooks, it's possible that our proxy server is down.  If you are set up to log into the CISCO VPN, try this workaround: 

When you click on the link for the database you are trying to access, if you copy the link and remove the proxy URL you should be able to get in. For example if you were trying to get into ProQuest you would do this

http://libproxy.nps.edu/login?url=http://search.proquest.com/ip?accountid=12702

remove this part: http://libproxy.nps.edu/login?url=

just use this part: http://search.proquest.com/ip?accountid=12702
