The University uses AnyConnect as a VPN client, which requires you to authenticate with your NetID before accessing subscription resources like databases. When accessing a database or other restricted resource, you should be automatically prompted to enter your NetID. 

Users of the old VPN client, Pulse Secure, will notice changes with AnyConnect, including the need to authenticate. You will also need to update any bookmarks to library resources.
