Off-Campus Access

Off-Campus Access?

Your ISUCard serves as a photo ID and doubles as your ISU Library card for borrowing library materials.  

To login from off-campus:
To access most library resources from off-campus, you can choose to log in with either your University Net-ID or your 11-digit University ID. We recommend using your Net-ID and ISU email password as the university is moving to Net-ID for everything.
NOTE: Your Net-ID is the prefix for your ISU email address - -

In a few rare instances, you may be asked to login with the last 11 digits of your University ID and a Library password that you set yourself. If that happens, you can Set your own password here.


This guide will help you learn about the services and resources available to our distance learners.

For login information, see our Off-Campus Access information box on this page.
