Most of our online indexes, ejournals, and full-text articles can be accessed both on and off-campus. Off-campus access requires an ISU Borrower ID (last 11 digits of your ISUCard) and password. See Set your Library password for more information.
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.
EndNote Web Support
EndNote and Endnote Web are robust bibliographic management software tools designed to help you collect, organize, and use necessary citations for your writing and research projects. Both these tools can be integrated with Microsoft Word, so while you are writing within Word, you can easily connect to EndNote or EndNote Web and retrieve necessary citations you've collected and stored there.
- Getting EndNote: ISU faculty and students can purchase EndNote from the University Bookstore at a discounted rate. (You could also buy it online via the EndNote website for roughly $250-$300.)
The Library will soon have EndNote software available on specific computers but for training purposes only, not available for permanent or on-demand work.
- Getting EndNote Web: EndNote Web is a free web version of EndNote, available to the ISU community due to the Library's subscription to Web of Knowledge. Simply visit the EndNote Web website and sign up for a free account using your ISU email address. (Also, Thomson Reuters (parent company of EndNote) provides an easy link to "My EndNote Web" through their Web of Knowledge databases, making it easy for ISU users of these databases to sign up for a free EndNote Web account.)
