Wireless Access

Wireless access to the ISU network is available within the Library building. Signal strength will vary according to the location of the user.

Remote Access

Access from outside the ISU network to Library databases is available to the ISU community under most circumstances and depends on an individual's computer and internet service provider, and on publisher licensing restrictions. Users should be aware that firewalls established by other entities, cookies and/or pop-up screens may interfere with such access.
