To login from off-campus:
Off-campus login to My Libary Card (My Account) and licensed materials can be two ways.
For both instances turn off your VPN connection if you are using one.
All users with an Iowa State University (ISU) Net-ID will use the Net-ID choice to sign into the library system. In all cases, users with a valid Net-ID will use it to log into library systems.
Net-ID login notes:
Users that do not have a Net-ID but who have an ISU OpenAthens account will use the OpenAthens choice to sign into the library system. The OpenAthens userid will be the email address on file for the user at the library.
After clicking on the OpenAthens choice shown in Figure 1 the user will see the screen shown in Figure 2. They will again select the OpenAthens choice. They will then see the screen shown in Figure 3. They will enter their OpenAthens userid (email address) and password in the area highlighted by the red box.
NOTE: Your Net-ID is the portion of your ISU email address that appears before the @ symbol, as in: email@example.com
