there is no printing capability for off-campus users. You must

you click on the link, you will be redirected to a screen with
a "Connect" button. If you have the correct software
installed on your computer you will be able to click on the "Connect"
button- if you don't have the correct software, the "Connect"
button will be grayed out, and you cannot connect.
the "Connect" button is grayed out, you have 3 possibilities;
- You need a downloaded piece of software called a Remote Active
X Plugin. You should be prompted to download this software. Accept
the download and then try to click on the "Connect" button
- If you have Norton Antivirus installed on your computer, it can
prevent you from accessing our site. You will need to call us at 630-617-3173

the Library Databases and Catalog Off-Campus
So you found an article
in one of our databases, but it's not full-text. Now what?
Don't fret. Look for these buttons: ,
or this line of text: (Find this resource
with SFX) next to the article citation on the search
screen. Clicking on this will take you to a list of our full-text
sources that carry the journal, if we have it.
You'll want to sign in before you begin to
search. Click on the "I-Share Libraries" at the catalog
search screen and then select "Renew Books/ My Account"
and sign in. Once you are signed in, you can request books and have
them delivered to a local library.
One of the quickest ways to search is to browse
by subject. Enter a subject term (such as Nursing) in
the search box, and in the "Search by" box, choose "Browse subject."
You'll get a long alphabetical list of nursing subjects, and you can
use the arrow key to toggle back and forth between pages in the list.
If you find a book that you'd
like to order, click on the "Request" button at the top of
the screen and follow the instructions. Under the option "Library
where you will pick up item," pick the library closest to you.
The book will be delivered there and you can pick it up with you Jaypass
at no charge.
