About This Guide

Welcome to our guide for University of Idaho Extension Educators and Researchers. The tabs above will help you navigate the resources included.

We want to make it easy for you to search the vast resources of the UI Library for your own research -- and to create learning opportunities for your community. If you don't find the information you need within this Guide, please contact your liaison librarian, Hanwen Dong, or the UI Library Reference Desk

Access Issues

To use the UI Library's article databases and e-journals from your Extension site, enter your Net ID at the prompt (Vandal email and password).  If you don't know your Net ID, contact ITS (,, or 208-885-HELP).

If you have problems connecting into the UI Library article databases, it could be as simple as asking your own systems administrator to allow access through a firewall. The system administrator at your site can configure the firewall to allow your computer to communicate with our servers. 

For more information on using the UI Library collections remotely, see our Guide to Distance Education.
