On- or off-campus, start each session by using a library Books24x7 link, authenticating via an IU popup window. Search or browse "IT and Technical" ebooks by 19 major topics. Click the yellow icon for hot-linked sub-topics, such as individual software programs. Browse short videos at right side of the resource opening page. Under "Browse Topics", select View by... "Desktop Video Topics" or "IT and Technical Video Topics".
The Coastal Carolina tutorials generally download and run automatically. If not, try a different Internet browser.
Anytime from anywhere access
You can access almost all of the library's databases from home so long as you are an IUPUI student, staff, or faculty member. Simply access a resource link via a library resource or subject guide page and input your campus username and password to the IU popup window when prompted. Library resources are "IP-filtered". You shouldn't be required to log in to a resource or pay for an article.
Using a library site link is required for Books24x7 ebooks whether on- or off-campus. An alternative that works for most other resources, is to use a campus VPN link as described below. VPN can save time, allowing options such as bookmarking a resource site.
A Virtual Private Network (VPN) connection allows you to act as part of IU's network when you are are off campus or off the campus network. This makes using library databases more seamless; you will usually not have to input your username and password via the library proxy server to use a database.
