Tips, especially for general questions such as how to find and access library resources and services.


Advanced help with resources or research

See contact details at right to call or email subject librarian Randall Halverson, or meet at the library.  


Remote access to resources

To access library resources from off-campus:

1. Establish a VPN link; see page The basics of VPN at IU. The UITS technology Support Center can assist.

2. Then access a resource that you are interested in


1. Use a "library" link each time you need to access a resource.

2. Library links include proxy server code to "authenticate": log in to the library's server via an IU pop-up window, and use the resource.



Find articles via various EBSCO subject databases:
Find articles on specialized topics via Engineering Village (EI Compendix):
Using the Quick Search (basics; 4 minutes)
Browsing Thesauri (provides a way to focus your search results; 2.35 minutes)
Tutorial provided by APA: Basics of APA Style
University Library research skills tutorials*: 
Avoiding Plagiarism (short; 2.5 minutes!)
Citing Sources (1.5 minutes)
Discovering Resources (8 minutes)
Open and Hidden Web (3 minutes)
Popular or Scholarly? (6 minutes)

*Technical notes: if a University Library tutorial does not download and start automatically:
  • On a pc: look for tiny icons in the upper right of the browser screen. Move your cursor over each icon or link to see see what these do. One should give you the option to open the tutorial via Adobe Reader. Internet Explorer may work better than Chrome or Mozilla Firefox.
  • On a mac: Safari may work better than Chrome or Firefox.
