Contact your Distance Education Librarian

Access to Journal Articles and Databases

Your SRU network logon or your 16-digit student ID ISO number can be used to access the library's many online databases off campus. Your SRU network logon is the same username and password you use for accessing SRU email. Your ISO number is located on the front of your new student ID. For off-campus access to the library's research databases, you will need to type in your network username and password OR your ISO number when prompted on the screen.

Additional questions about accessing library resources remotely should be directed to Kathy Manning (724-738-4458) or Martina Haines (724-738-2664). Weekdays after 4:30 p.m., contact any reference librarian at 724-738-2641.
