The Library Password: Your Gateway to Library Resources Online

The first thing you should do is set up your library password.  Your library account number is the number on the back of your MackCard under the barcode.  You can access library resources from off campus with your library number and your library password. The library password is different from your IT password.  To learn how to set up your password, watch the video below.
