Off-Campus and International Access to Library Resources

Remote access

You can access library services off-campus using your Notre Dame NetID and/or your Irish1Card. A Notre Dame NetID is more important for remote access and allows you to access the large majority of our resources, regardless of your physical location.​ 


NetID: Gives you access to online resources

Irish1Card: Gives you access to borrow physical items (depending on your card status/privileges)
