Ivy College of Business: Library Resources

Library resources and information for faculty, staff, and students in the College of Business.

Welcome to the Iowa State University Library

Welcome to the Iowa State University Library!

This guide is designed to get you started using library resources. You will find that many of the Library's materials (journal articles and databases) are available remotely.

Whether you are a new student, faculty or staff member, I'd love to chat with you about all the library has to offer. I'll be glad to meet with you via email, phone, or at my office in Parks Library. Email and appointment links are available in my contact information.


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.
