Welcome to SPIX!

SIPX is a technology service that helps manage and streamline the copyright clearance process for faculty, staff and students. The system draws in all types of content and data, including library-licensed content in which the university library has already made significant investments, open-access materials, and comprehensive publisher content.

Step 1 - Finding Materials for Course Reserves

SIPX is not a discovery tool, so you will only be able to search for specific items. If you're still identifying materials for your course readings, try DiscoverLibrary, the library's search tool for articles, books, and much more. You can also contact your Subject Liaison Librarian for help.
