The University of Connecticut Libraries contain 3.6 million volumes; 51,000 currently received print and electronic periodicals; 4.3 million units of microform; 15,000 reference sources; 232,000 maps; sound and video recordings; musical scores; and a wide variety of electronic resources. You may borrow books from any University library, utilize the interlibrary loan/document delivery service, or access the library's online materials by visiting the library website. If you are off-campus, you will be prompted to enter your NetID and password. You are also able to borrow books and articles from a consortium of libraries with which UConn shares resources through ILLiad. Instructors receive UConn ID cards, which can be used to physically check out books. Students and other members of the UConn ECE community can receive community borrowing cards at any UConn library. If you would like your students to receive community borrowing cards, please contact us. Visit the Early College Experience Orientation Guide for more information on to use the UConn libraries.

A NetID is a unique identifier created by the University that allows access to University computing services. Your NetID is needed to access the University of Connecticut Student Administration System (for checking rosters and submitting grades), to access library materials, to check Enrollment Reports (site representatives only), and to use HuskyCT. Once you have been officially added to our database, University Information Technology Services (UITS) will send a NetID e-mail to your personal e-mail address. This e-mail will provide you with your NetID and instructions on to activate it and how to set an initial NetID password. Your NetID is displayed as a combination of letters and numbers.
Student Administration System (SAS)
The University of Connecticut's PeopleSoft Student Administration System manages student admissions, records, registration, grades and financial information. Students will also use the SAS System to pay fee bill, view course grades, and request transcripts. To access the SAS System, visit www.studentadmin.uconn.edu. The SAS system has a number of tutorials available on various features.
You will be prompted to enter your NetID and password to use SAS. If you do not remember your NetID, go to https://netid.uconn.edu/ and use the "Find NetID" feature.
Google Apps for Education
Starting the Fall of 2013 UConn Google Apps was extended to faculty at the university. The core services (Calendar, Drive, Hangout, Sites, Groups) can be accessed through an opt-in process which includes the same contractual user level agreement as the students. The various applications across Google Apps makes it easy to find new innovative methods to teach. What makes this work well is that many students are already using these applications so integration into the classroom should be seamless. Your UConn Google Apps username is not your NetID but your UConn email address.

UITS provides the University of Connecticut with the learning management system HuskyCT. It can be used to supplement face-to-face instruction or to deliver complete courses via the web through a web browser. Class sites must be requested through the Student Administration System. Library Media Specialists may also request non-class sites to create resource guides. Many UConn faculty will use HuskyCT to communicate to high school instructors.
