The computers in Brookens Library are provided for the use of all students, faculty, staff, and community members.  All activities must adhere to the UIS Guidelines for Acceptable Use of Information Technology Resources

Logging in

Student, faculty, and staff should use their NetID and password to login to the computers.

Saving Documents

Please do not save files directly to the computers, as computers are wiped daily.  It is recommended that files be saved to a cloud storage option such as Box or Google Drive.  

Guest Access

Community members are required to obtain a guest login from the library main desk in order to use library computers.  


Wireless access is available to students, faculty, and staff with a valid netID by connecting to UISWiFi.

Guest Access

Any guest user who connects to the UISGuest wifi will be prompted for a personal email address and must read and accept the Acceptable Use Policy before being granted access. For problems accessing the network as a guest user, please visit the ITS Client Services Center in the lower level of Brookens Library or call (217) 206-6000.
