The Library requires you sign in to use electronic resources. More information can be found here. You may need to log in in different ways for different purposes: My Account using your ISU Net-ID or your OpenAthens ID account. Most students find it easiest to do everything using your ISU Net-ID.
My account on our Library website allows you to create your own booklists, renew items you've checked out, and so on, but it does not give you access to our subscription articles, journals, databases, etc. when you're off campus.
You will be prompted to login either using your ISU Net-ID or your OpenAthens ID and password (something you set up independent from your Net-ID) to be able to access licensed ebook content such as EBSCO's eBook Collection. Downloaded or saved PDF files from the EBSCO eBook Collection can be read by Nook or Kindle. More information on logging in can be found here: Logging into Library Systems
