Where Do I Get A Library Password?

What Do I Do With This Information?

When you try to use the library databases from home, you will see a page that asks for your LIBRARY BARCODE and LIBRARY PASSWORD. Type these in the boxes and press Submit.

The Login Screen looks like this: 

Login to Your Account.  Enter your 14-digit library barcode with no spaces, then enter your Library password, then click Log in.  if you have forgotten your password, click the Forgot your password link.

If you log in once, you should stay logged in for a little while. However, if you leave the computer for a long period of time, or if you shut down or put your computer to sleep, you will need to sign in again.

How Do I Get Help?

If you are unable to log into the databases from home, please come in, call, or email us ASAP.
