Science students are eligible for writing support, including citing sources, via the campus University Writing Labs, and can take classes in the Technical Communication (TCM) program.

Anytime from anywhere access

You can access almost all of the library's databases from home or other location so long as you are an IUPUI student, staff, or faculty member. Library resources are "IP-filtered". Access typically requires using the campus computer network, such as the campus wireless system,  or one of the two strategies given below.   


1. Simply access a resource link provided on a University Library webpage, such as a subject guide page or by following links Resources --> Databases A-Z . Input your campus username and password only to an IU popup window. 

Using a library site link is required for Books24x7 ebooks, even when on the campus network.


2. An alternative to using a University Library website resource link that works for most resources, other than Books24x7, is to use a campus VPN link as described below. VPN can save time, allowing options such as bookmarking a resource site.
