Get Connected: Off-Campus Access
1. Ready? Get your ISUCard!
2. Set? Set your Library password!
3. Go! Use the ISU e-Library!
If you're prompted to login while connecting to any of the e-Library resources or services, simply use the last 11 digits of your ISUCard number (sometimes called Borrower ID on Library web pages), and use your Library password. Don't have or don't remember your Library password? Set a new one here.
ISU Distance Education students & instructors, please see our Distance Learning page, our fuller DL Guide, and the ISU DE website's New Student Information (pdf) for more specifics about off-campus access and getting your ISUCard number.
First, if you're using a Virtual Private Network (VPN), turn it off. A VPN client bypasses the steps listed above and delivers your request directly to the commercial database vendor, but without identifying you as an authorized user/subscriber.
