What is EIR?

We use a variety of electronic and information resources (EIR) on and off campus to provide information and services, including applications (e.g. desktop, mobile, and web-based apps), electronic content (e.g. documents, presentations, videos), and computer hardware (e.g. laptops, mobile phones).
