Why Can’t I Use My Netid Password Anymore to Login to Library Resources?

As of January 16th, 2011 Library patrons using on-line library resources from off-campus will be greeted with a different screen when trying to access electronic resources. Users will be required to login using their netid and an Active Directory password.

If you do not remember your Active Directory password click on the link below the “Forgot your Active Directory password?” when connecting to an electronic resource to reset your password or click on this link.

For more information about the Active Directory, and changing/establishing an Active Directory password please go to the Cites "Managing Your Accounts and Passwords" page.

The Library had been using Ezproxy to authenticate and authorize remote users. They switched to Shibboleth which is an Internet2 initiative.
