Getting started: accessing the University's online resources

  3. Type your date of birth (in the format monthddyy e.g.. september1575) in the old password box
  4. Type in a new password
  5. Confirm your new password.

Your Username and new password will now give you access to Blackboard and the electronic resources (ebooks and ejournals) available via the Library website.

If you do not know your Account ID number you can request it via email:
