Library Computing FAQs

How do I log onto a computer in the library?

  • To log onto any University computer, students, staff, and faculty use their email (Huskies) user name and email password, also called their Single Sign On (SSO).
  • PA Residents use their name, firstname.lastname, as their username and Barcode from their library card to serve as password, until they change it.

Is there remote access to the library's electronic journals and databases?

  • Currently affiliated or enrolled students, staff, and faculty have remote access using their SSO. Visit the Off-Campus Access page for more information.
