Security & Off-Campus Access

To the University of Texas at Dallas Community,

Due to a cyber assault on the University Library’s online resources, we have added an extra layer of security to the system. When accessing our online resources from a remote location, you will now be asked for your last name as well as you Comet Card number. Your last name will go in a separate field and will be encrypted. It is extremely important that you do not share your Comet Card number, and if you lose your Comet Card, alert the Comet Card office immediately. We are working with the Information Resources staff to protect our resources from misuse and unauthorized access that could threaten everyone’s access to these materials. Your understanding and cooperation are appreciated.

Larry D. Sall, Ph.D.
Dean of Libraries
The University of Texas at Dallas
