Students enrolled at both Dickinson State University (DSU) and Bismarck State College (BSC) (collaborative students) may use library resources and services at both institutions.
Faculty and staff employed by both DSU and BSC also have access to library resources and services at both institutions.
Students who are enrolled only in DSU classes taught on the BSC campus may use the BSC Library and its resources and services with the following limitations:
As a Dickinson State University student on the Bismarck State College campus you may want to connect to the Wi-Fi that is available while on the BSC campus.
Bismarck State College has three network possibilities, BSC-Employees, BSC-Guest and NDUS-Systemwide.
If you have your computer set to “Join Network” and not set to “Ask to Join Networks,” you automatically connect to the BSC-Guest network. That network gives you access to only the Internet, not to any of the DSU library resources.
In order to access DSU library resources, students need to connect to the NDUS-Systemwide Network.
Here’s what the options look like:
This is from a Mac computer but PC computer users will see the same listing in their network connection.
When you join the NDUS-Systemwide network, this is the window asking you to log in.
If you only get asked to “Accept” the connection, you are on the BSC-Guest network.
For students enrolled at both campuses in the same semester, there may be issues accessing online resources from both libraries. If you have problems accessing DSU library resources, please contact Stoxen Library for assistance.
