  1. Install the Kopernio plugin for free.

  2. Select Pennsylvania State University from the list of universities, and create an account.

    Select your institution from the menu after registration.
  3. If you are on-campus, Kopernio is all set to go. If you are off-campus you will need to connect Kopernio to the Pennsylvania State University library in order to access subscription journal articles.
