Library Direct


The Library Direct service provides an easy, memorable way to access your favorite WIU library databases. Each library subscription database has been assigned a shortcode (typically a 3-letter code), and a longname based on its standard title (view Usage Notes). Simply append either of these codes to the URL shown below [directly after the question mark (?)], and set your browser in motion!
