During COVID

Milner Library is here to help, even now. This page will tell you about the resources and services we offer right now. For more information and up-to-date news, check the library's COVID Response Page.

Curbside Pickup and On Campus Delivery

For physical items you would normally check out from the library or from I-Share, you can use curbside pickup or on campus delivery. 

  1. Log in using your ULID or Courtesy Card credentials.
  2. Request an item from our catalog.
  3. For Pickup Location, select Milner Library for curbside pickup or Work Address under Personal Delivery to receive items via campus mail.
  4. You'll receive an "Item Available Notice" email when the item is ready to be picked up.
  5. Schedule a pickup time. For Milner items, use the link in the email. For I-Share items, contact the Circulation Desk at 309-438-7321.

More detailed instruction and information can be found here.

Virtual Computer Labs

If you have a computer and need a specific program offered by Milner's computer lab, you can use the Virtual Computer Labs to access that program from your personal computer. You will need an internet connection, a computer, and your ULID credentials. 

More information, including instructions and a list of labs and programs available virtually, can be found here.

Milner Library By Appointment

Current ISU faculty, staff, and students can request an appointment to access the physical building through their subject librarian, between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Appointments are meant for access to collections or other resources that are only available in the building.

If you're a COB faculty, staff, or student, please contact me with questions or to schedule an appointment. 

Electronic Resources

Electronic resources include databases (e.g., ISIBWorld), ebooks, journals, streaming media, and more. If you've accessed it online through Milner, you still have access to it. You need a computer, internet access, and your ULID credentials.
