If you are taking classes online or at one of the University of Idaho centers, this guide is for you! Use the tabs above to discover how to access library resources without ever stepping into the building!
To use this guide, try opening up a separate browser tab or window and follow along with the instructions you see within it.
For Interlibrary Loan Requests, a library barcode number is still needed. If you do not have a Vandal Card, please call 208-885-6843 or email email@example.com to receive a barcode number.
Please contact the Reference Desk with any questions at 208-885-6584, firstname.lastname@example.org, or via chat at http://www.lib.uidaho.edu!
Search the Library's Catalog (Primo)
What do each of these tabs actually search?
- UI Library: Print and ebooks from the UI Library (Main Library, Law Library, Curriculum Center, Women's Center, Anthropology Lab, and Herbarium)
- +Summit: Print books and ebooks from the UI Library and print books from the 36 other members of the Orbis Cascade Alliance (see a list of libraries here).
- +Summit + Articles: Everything that the +Summit scope searches and SOME of the UI Library article databases.
- Reserves: If your professor says something is "on reserve" at the library, use this tab to find it. You can search by class name or professor name.
