How do I use my I-Card to access resources from off-campus?
When you visit one of the databases on the All Databases or Databases by Subject pages from an off-campus location, before you are taken to the database itself you will be asked to authenticate as an IUP student, faculty member, or staff member. For our databases, the authentication tool we use is Keystone Library Network (KLN) PASS.
When you click on the database title, you will be taken to the KLN PASS page. In the block on the left, where it asks for library barcode or ID, enter the 16-digit number on your I-Card and then your last name. The system will check you against our patron database and, if you are a valid user, pass you through to the database you want. If you are unable to authenticate, please contact the Reference Desk or Circulation Desk (see the contact page for details) for further assistance.
