Internet Access

The University of Illinois no longer provides dialup access to the Internet.  You will need to obtain an Internet connection through a 3rd party provider, such as your local cable or phone company.

To access library resources with a non-University of Illinois Internet connection, you must start your research through the Library Gateway.  This will assure that all of your connections to remote databases and online journals go through our proxy server in order to authenticate you are affiliated with the University of Illinois.  In order to access any library subscription resource, you will be prompted for your NetID and password.
