Our access to the Factive database requires you to do several steps.
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.
- Using the VPN for library access
- After installing the VPN client, you have to connect each time you want to do research.
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.
