This Guide accompanies the "Graduate Students: Everything you Need to Know about the Library... but were afraid to ask!" Library workshop. The workshop goals are as follows:
Learn about selected Library services, databases, and information available to support your graduate studies
Learn who is YOUR subject librarian
Give you introductory hands-on search experience with some of the databases

We plan to record our Fall 2017 Workshop and link it here. We recommend you open one window for viewing / listening to the webinar, and another window for following along and getting hands-on practice with the indexes & resources we covered, linked here in this Guide!
Here are just a few helpful Library resources & services that support graduate students and post docs in your research, teaching, and professional development.
The My Library Card link in the top right corner of our Library website leads to TWO different ways to login, neither of which is explained. Here's an explanation:
ISU Net-ID login: this one allows you to to see what you have checked out, renew items, save your searches, and so on. Login using your ISU Net-ID and the same password you use for login to AccessPlus, Blackboard / Canvas, your ISU email, etc.
The last 11-digits on your red ISUCard and your Library password: this method allows you to have off-campus access to our subscription ejournals, full-text articles, online indexes and databases, and so on. You may see this method called Borrower ID login. You'll also need to set a Library password for logging in this way.
We are working toward a single sign-in solution for all your Library needs. We are not yet there - definitely stay tuned!
