Resource News

Anytime from anywhere access

You can access almost all of the library's electronic resources (databases) from home or other location so long as you are an IUPUI student, staff, or faculty member. Library resources are "IP-filtered". Access typically requires using the campus computer network, such as the campus wireless system,  a link to the resource from a library site page to bring up an IU login popup window to authenticate), or an IUPUI VPN as described at "Off-Campus Access to Library Resources". 

With Covid-related network changes, VPN does not always work for certain resources. In that case, use a library site link or install our new EZProxy Bookmarklet.

Note that for Skillsoft IT- and Business-related ebooks, using a library site link is required on or off the campus network.
