You must be a currently registered student to have access to the library databases.  If you are not, you will not be able to use the databases from off-campus.

If you are a currently registered student, you will use your WID number and your password to login.  Your WID should automatically be in our system, along with your PW.  Your password is the first two letters of your first name, the first two letters of your last name, and then the last four digits of your WID.

A couple common issues:

  1. Not capitalizing the “W” in the WID number:  the W often must be capitalized for the login to work.
  2. Not accessing the databases through our library website:  the databases are restricted to students, staff, and faculty, so you have to access them by clicking on the links through our website to open them, rather than going through a Google search or a browser link.

If you are still having trouble, please call us directly at 925-424-1161 or email us at, so that we can make sure you are in the system and further troubleshoot with you, as needed.
