Set Up Your Library Account
You can't check out any books (or request books from other libraries) until you take your ID card to the circulation desk and activate your account.
Install the VPN
You can access electronic resources 24/7 from home...as long as you are logged into the Library VPN (Transporter). Install it on your home computer as soon as possible.
Create an ILLiad Account
Need a journal article that we don't have access to? Create an ILLiad account so that you can request PDF copies from another library.
Need help with research or using the library? You can chat, call, email, or text the Library's Reference Desk.
