Problem with New Patron Accounts

Students who are new to the University this semester may find that they cannot log into their library accounts, place book requests, or access the library's electronic resources from off campus. The library has experienced an issue with getting all new students records into its system in time for the first day of classes, August 20th. We ask that students be patient while we work to correct this problem, and we hope to have the problem resolved as soon as possible.

Please try these services at a later time and repeatedly, if necessary. We should have patron accounts working soon. If access to our resources is needed immediately, students can always access books and electronic resources in person at the library during any of our regular operating hours.
