Why can't I see the e-reserves?

Valid for Moodle 2.8.  Updated on 07/09/2015.Some e-reserves may not be available to users off-campus using the standard network connection. This can be a particular problem for 5 College students. The solution to this is to set up a VPN connection.  This tricks the provider of the e-reserve into thinking you are on-campus.  You must have an Amherst College username to set up a VPN connection.
