Accessing Library Databases Off-Campus

  1. Go to the UIS home page at http://www.uis.edu and click on the “Library” hyperlink at the top of the page.
  2. At the Brooken’s Library page, click on “Brooken’s Bridge: Gateway to Library Databases”. This will take you to the listing of online databases.

This is the same User I.D. and password used by students to access their UIS e-mail. For more information regarding your User I.D and password, please visit the following website: http://www.uis.edu/informationtechnologyservices/netid
  4. The “First Search” database requires a special authorization number and password which can be obtained from the UIS Library Reference desk.
