Accessing Article Databases and Other Library Accounts

The Library has many resources to help you with your research needs. You will need to know your username and password to access many library resources from off-campus.


Library Databases:

The Library has access to many electronic databases that contain full-text scholarly articles and more. When you are using a computer from off-campus to access one of these databases, you will be prompted for your username and password.  If you are using a campus computer you do not need to log into the database.

User ID:  Your User ID is your NetID

Password: If you don't know your password you can reset it by clicking here. *Note* You will need your MyInfo ID and Pin to reset this password.



Library Account:

The same username and password that you use to access our databases will also allow you to access your Library Account.  This account is used to renew MSUB books, review your checkouts, place holds on books, and review library fines.



Interlibrary Loan:

Log into your Interlibrary Loan (ILL) account using your NetID and password if you would need an item not owned by the MSUB Library.  You can request books, articles, or media using your ILLiad account and the ILL staff will find a library who will lend it to us.
