I need help logging in. How do I log in to a database? What is my login?
You have a choice of two options to access our electronic resources from off campus. You can use either your familiar campus login and password—the same combo used to open your KU email, D2L, and MyKU—or your KU library barcode.
If you hit a link that takes you through the earlier system, that's explained here.
Your KU library barcode number is the 16-digit number on the front of your KU ID card beginning 50392 or 622001, or the 14-digit number on your gold library card beginning 20506. Enter the number exactly as it appears; do not include spaces. (If this doesn't work, the most likely cause is that your card has not yet been 'validated' by the library; call 610-683-4480 or visit the Information Commons desk to remedy that.)
Your campus login is the login name and password that you use to access the computers on campus.
To log in, either use your card number & last name in the left-hand panel or simply click the large 'Login' button at right...
...and then, if you see the next screen simply sign in with your KU Live email (the part before the @ should be all you need) and the same password that you use to access your mail, D2L, and the computers on campus:
