Off-campus access to the library's electronic resources is available to current students, faculty, and staff at Eastern Illinois University. You will be prompted to login with your EIU netid and password if it is required. You will only need to login once per browser session.
Please see additional instructions on this page: Remote Access to Library Resources.
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 Panther card. You may look up your library id number if you do not have your Panther card available.
Alternatively, for the library's print journals, you can search the EIU Online Catalog. Go to the Advanced Search screen, enter the journal title in the search box, and check the "Journal / Magazine" box in the "Limit To" section below.
Print reserve materials are placed at the Circulation Desk, located at the south end of the 3000 Level. CDs, videos and other non-print reserves are placed at the Library Technology Services desk on the 4000 level. These materials are searchable under the "Course Reserves" link in the EIU Online Catalog.
CDs and DVDs are located on the 4000 level. The library collects feature films, documentaries, performance, television, and educational films. VHS video tapes can be requested at the Circulation Desk. Search the EIU Library Catalog and limit by Formats and Media to see what we own. The library also has streaming video.
