Off-Campus Access to Library Resources

How Do I Login from Off-Campus?

NOTE: You don't need a link to get in--when you click on something that requires a login, you will be prompted.

Step 1: FIRST-TIME USER? You are already registered!

     Accounts for new students are created automatically.

Step 2: Login

     USERNAME = barcode number on your ID.
     PASSWORD (default) = yulis - If you need us to reset it, email us at

Step 3: Designate a new password for off-campus access.

     Enter yulis (lower case) as your old password.


Log in with your "active directory" (YUAD) username and password.

     This is the username and password you use to log in to access your YU email or a library computer.
