Our access to the Factive database requires you to do several steps.

Step 1:

Off-campus access only works with the campus Pulse VPN client.  You will need to download the VPN client, open the software, and connect/authenticate before using the link to Factiva below.

Step 2:

Once you are connected to the VPN, you are ready to use Factiva.

  • NOTE:  While you won't find a link for UCSB on the page linked above, clicking on the link for any campus should give you access as long as you are connected to the VPN.

IMPORTANT:  Factiva does not work well with all browsers.  If it does not work with your favorite browser, please try with a different browser.
