Access!

ISU card

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

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 - - yournetid@iastate.edu

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.

ISU Distance Education students & instructors, please see our Distance Learning guide for more specifics about off-campus access and getting your ISUCard number.
