IMPORTANT! Only current Eastern Kentucky University faculty, staff, and students have access to online library resources.

What is my Library Login?

Your login for using library resources is the same one you use for other EKU resources (ex. Blackboard, EKU Direct, EKU MyMail, Google Drive, etc.): your full email address and your email password.

The login for campus/library computers is a little different—see the What about library computers? section.

Example usernames for library resources:

  • Student :
  • Faculty/Staff:

Login Screen

REMEMBER: Your login is the same across all EKU resources.

When do I log in?

You will be prompted to log in when you click on a link to a database, article, video, eBook or any other password-protected online resource (from both on and off campus) provided to you by EKU Libraries. 

If you have already logged into another EKU resource you might not have to log in again and instead will be taken directly to the library resource.

Having trouble logging in?

If you can't log in or the library resource you are trying to use still doesn't show up after you log in, try clearing your internet history/cache, closing your internet browser, and re-opening it to start a new session. 

If that doesn't work, check if you can still log into other EKU resources like Blackboard and/or your email. If you can access other EKU resources but can't access library resources, let us know.

If you can't log into any EKU resources, contact IT to make sure your user account information is up to date.


What about library computers? 

To log into campus computers, including library computers, you will use only the username portion of your email (and your email password). For students, the username is the part that comes before the @ symbol in your EKU email address.

Example usernames for library computers:

  • Student : john_doe21
  • Faculty/Staff: doej

If you are entering your username and password correctly and still can't log into a library/campus computer, contact IT to make sure your user account information is up to date.
