What do I need a library password  for?

You need it to renew your books online, submit Inter Library Loan requests and use the quick check machine on campus. It is completely different from your "Campus Password" which you use for student e-mail, Moodle, library databases, Summon and logging into college computers. 

How to get a Library Password

  1. click on the My Account link on the library homepage and then click create password
  2. input your student or staff number in lowercase or uppercase 
  3. Leave the password blank, and click submit
  4. the system will prompt you to create a password. The rules for creating passwords are on that page.

If all else fails- reset your Library Password

There is a link on the library login page for you to reset your library password. This generates an email with a reset link that goes to whatever email address you setup as your "preferred" email address when you registered online to study at IT Sligo. This reset link expires after 3 hours.

4/01/17 we are aware of an issue at the moment regarding the e-mail not sending with the reset link. If you are not getting this reset e-mail within 15 minutes and you have checked your junk and clutter folders and the e-mail is not there please e-mail us at with your student number.
