Accessing Library Resources & Services

There are two options for using library services (such as Interlibrary Loan) or connecting to resources remotely:

  • Library services use 2 different IDs and passwords - depending on what you are trying to do. We recommend you use your NetID (prefix of your email address - e.g., and ISU email password wherever possible.
  • If the only login option you are given is to use the last 11 digits of your ISU ID (not just 9 digits) and a library password. Current library passwords expired in August 2018 and users can get a library password at:
  • You do not need to know your old library password in order to get a new one. New library passwords are automatically generated and will be sent to your registered ISU email account.

Logins are required to use library services such as "My Library Card" or Interlibrary Loan. You also need to use a login if you are connecting from off-campus to library databases.

Connectivity Issues?

In the event that you have problems connecting to Library Resources or other products (e.g., Lynda) you can contact me via the email on the right. 

You can also contact the ISU Information Technology Services Solution Center. They can diagnose connectivity problems related to how your laptop or tablet connects (or doesn't!) to the ISU network. When you contact the Solution Center have information about your current machine and operating system available.
