Your main login is your MySCSU login. It's used for library access, Banner access, Blackboard Learn 9 access, and, of course, access to the MySCSU portal. Check your MySCSU login at http://myscsu.southernct.edu/ -- there is also a reset link on that page. You'll use your MySCSU password to log into the library catalog to renew and request books and see course reserves, and to log into the Interlibrary Loan system. It's also your main way of accessing the library databases and online subscriptions from off campus. See http://libguides.southernct.edu/offcampus for more information.
Sometimes it takes a little while for the library systems to "catch up" when you reset your MySCSU password. It also helps if you log into a campus computer or https://remote.southernct.edu/ within a few hours after resetting your password. This fully synchronizes your MySCSU password with the network login, which is also used for logging into the campus wireless system on the SCSUInternet network.
If you are not registered for courses in the current semester, you will not be able to use library resources. (Spring registration will cover summer access.) If you are not registered for courses but are still matriculated, please pay the Matriculation fee at the Bursar and bring/send proof of payment to the Circulation desk.
If you have trouble with your MySCSU password or campus computer login (Network ID), contact the OIT Helpdesk at http://helpdesk.southernct.edu, firstname.lastname@example.org, 203-392-5123, or visit the service desk on the first floor of Buley (check the website for hours).
If you have trouble with your MySCSU password and are still unable to login, contact the Circulation Desk at 203-392-5756 to check if your account is active.
