Please note, if you are experiencing login difficulties it could be due to:

  • You do not have an active SLC account. If you are a new student or employee, you will not have access to the online library until you are activated in the campus system. This can sometimes take several days after registration.
  • Your sign-on credentials are the same as other SLC systems including, BlackBoard and email - this is called "Single Sign On" or SSO. If you have been locked out of your SLC account, access may be restored by contacting the ITS department ( or through self-serve password retrieval. ITS has a page of How-to guides for students and staff.
  • You are trying to access a resource that is not licensed through SLC Library, is not available, or is rendering a broken link. To help us troubleshoot, contact the library with as much detail as possible about the specific resource you want to access (i.e. a specific article, ebook or video title) and a screenshot, if possible. 
  • You are trying to login to a third-party or vendor provided account. Users are only required to enter their SLC credentials to access online library  resources. Many databases or sites have optional accounts that users may opt-in to self-register to access additional features. For example, to download an eBook to a personal device, you may be prompted for a MyEbscoHost Account or a Proquest eBook Central Account. The library team can assist with these additional features.
