To login to library databases from off campus, we encourage you to use the link in the upper right corner of the Library homepage.
You will be taken to the MyISU portal webpage. After logging into MyISU, you will be redirected back to the Library Web site to continue working.
If you click on this link while on campus, nothing will happen. You must be off campus to be asked to login.
The Library is still resolving some of the technical difficulties from other webpages, but the homepage link mentioned above is working.

The Indiana State Library [no, not the ISU Library!] has recently renovated a space on the second floor of the library, and created a Browsing Collection. The collection contains some of the newest and most popular items from the closed stacks, for patrons and state employees to browse and check out.
The space is a great place to relax during the lunch hour or any free time. Patrons can catch up on James Patterson’s books in our large print collection or read about the history of Indiana breweries, the Colts, and more local topics from items in our Indiana collection. History buffs can find several new books of interest in our General Collection.
The Browsing Collection large print fiction is organized in alphabetical order by the author’s last name, the rest of the collection is arranged by the call number, subject-based sections.
There are many categories of books to choose from including: American History; American States and Local History; Geography, Business, Finance, and Commerce; Economics and Management; Law and Education; Literature and Science; Sociology, The Family, Social Issues; Politics and Government; Medicine; Philosophy and Religion; Sports and Recreation; Technology Economics and Management
Indiana residents can get their Free Indiana State Library card at the Circulation Desk located on the first floor of the Indiana State Library, 315 W. Ohio St, Indianapolis, IN 46202. All you need to obtain a library card is a picture ID, and proof of your current address. The borrowing period for this collection is 3 weeks.
This collection will continue to grow in the future, so be sure to stop by on a regular basis. The library staff looks forward to seeing you soon.

The student printer in the Basement has been moved to the 3rd floor. Printers are now located on floors 1, 2, and 3.
The basement printer was not being used very much for a number of reasons. We’re hoping the “higher” profile will take some of the burden off the first floor printers.
There will be signs in the basement indicating the new location, but library signs, web pages, etc. will be updated in the days to come.
