Off-campus access to the library's electronic resources is limited to current students, faculty, and staff at Eastern Illinois University.

Simply click the links on the library's website. You will be prompted for login if required.

The screen below pictured below will appear automatically when you click a link to a resource that requires authentication for off-campus use. Nearly all journals, databases, and other resources linked to the library's website can be used outside of the EIU campus. For many resources, you will be required to enter your EIU Net ID and password to gain access..

Your NetID is a unique name assigned to you when you are accepted as a student at EIU or become an employee of EIU. It serves as your login to many University computing and networking services. If you need assistance with your NetID or password, please call the EIU Information Technology Services Help Desk at 581-HELP(4357).


Alternative Login Option

If you are having problems logging in with your NetID, there is an alternative login system using your Library ID number and last name. Your library ID number is located in the lower right corner of your Panthercard, illustrated below. You may look up your library ID number if you do not have your Panthercard available.
