When using a classroom PC you can save files to the H: drive, which is your personal and secure filespace in the university network. Documents and files saved there can be retrieved from any PC on campus. But what happens when you work from home and need to access a file that is saved on your H: drive?
The VPN (Virtual Private Network) provides remote access through your own computer to your filespace on the university server when you are at home, or use your laptop at a wireless spot, on campus or in the halls.
To remotely access a file saved on your H: drive, open your web browser and login to the VPN with your University of Aberdeen username and password. https://remote.abdn.ac.uk
The first time you login on your personal computer you must install the Aventail Access Manager. This is a one-time process that will set you up with the components for accessing the network and keeping up to date. Just follow the onscreen instructions or read our user guidelines.
To access shared network space, email your request to firstname.lastname@example.org, with the subject ‘Remote VPN: request access to shared filespace’.

The Oxford University Standard for Citation of Legal Authorities (OSCOLA) is a system of legal citation that has been adopted by most law schools in the United Kingdom, including the University of Aberdeen’s School of Law.
If you are unsure about how to cite primary sources or struggle referencing electronic vs paper journals, there are several guides available online to help you:
• OSCOLA (4th edn., Hart, 2012). A comprehensive guide to citing authorities, legislation, and other legal materials. A hard copy of the manual can be found in the reference section at the Taylor Library issue desk.
• OSCOLA 2006: Citing International Law. OSCOLA (4th edn.) does not cover International Law.
• Library’s Quick Guide to OSCOLA. Contains examples of some of the most commonly cited legal sources.
If you prefer to use software to generate citations you may want to investigate EndNote or Citavi reference management packages that can support the OSCOLA referencing style. Please note that OSCOLA is not supported by RefWorks.
