Access from Off-Campus

You can do everything from home, except check out a print book. That means you can read ebooks and journal articles and watch streaming video. You will be prompted to login. Use your  SLAS which should be the same as your CSI email username and password. If you need a password reset please email (On campus, go to the Helpdesk at 2A-306D.)
