What is VPN?

Meaning: The term virtual private network (abbreviated VPN) describes any technology that can encapsulate and transmit network data, typically Internet Protocol data, over another network. Such a system enables users to access network resources that may otherwise be inaccessible from the public internet. (Wikipedia, 2021)

NOAA Network and VPN are used by the Library interchangeably. This allows us to authenticate your access to our digital resources, such as ebooks, journals, and databases.
