Welcome to the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign and to the Summer Research Lab! The Summer Lab will be June 12- August 4, 2017.
Since 1973, the Russian and East European Center at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign has hosted a Summer Research lab. SRL Associates receive full library privileges to conduct research in the University Library. The privileges include free access to the stacks, use of a carrel, and the right to check out books and bound periodicals.
This guide will serve to orient visiting scholars to the multitude of research technologies available at the library here at Illinois.
The Slavic Reference Service staff will be available to assist you with technology related issues. Do not hesitate to contact us at: email@example.com
In August of 2011, the Slavic, Asian, Africana, Latin American and Caribbean departmental libraries were consolidated into the International and Area Studies (IAS) Library. The Slavic Reference Service, Acquisitions, and Cataloging staff continue to work, collaborate, and communicate with each other to create an ideal research space for SRL participants. All of the services associated with the Summer Research Laboratory for the last forty years are still in place. Throughout your stay, the Slavic Reference Staff are ready to assist you with research inquiries, verifying citations, locating materials and holding institutions, using research technologies, library access and policies, and with bibliographic sources.

Here is some information on Internet Access on and off Campus (Note: These annotations were composed by Technology Services at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign)
IllinoisNet is the primary wireless network on campus. It is a WPA2 secure wireless network that will allow you to access online campus resources. In most cases, once you properly configure your laptop, tablet, or phone to connect to IllinoisNet, you will be able to automatically connect to IllinoisNet anywhere on campus without having to log in again.
IllinoisNet_Start is a network that you can use to easily configure your laptop, tablet, or phone to connect to IllinoisNet. You only need to use IllinoisNet_Start once. After successfully completing the configuration process, you will be able to connect immediately to IllinoisNet, and you will no longer have to use IllinoisNet_Start.
IllinoisNet_Start can also be used by visitors to campus to gain limited, temporary access to our wireless network.
UIUCnet is a less-secure on campus wireless network for students, faculty, and staff. UIUCnet will require you to log in with your University credentials every time that you connect to wireless. If you are frustrated by the constant need to log in every time you want to use wireless, we recommend connecting to IllinoisNet instead of UIUCnet.
This less-secure network can be used by the public to connect to wireless. Students, faculty, and staff should not use UIPublicWifi. In addition, visitors to campus should use the IllinoisNet_Start visitor connection instead of UIPublicWifi.
