Library login issues

The student login for library resources has changed. Beginning Monday, August 21, 2017, use only the first six characters of your LORA PIN (personal identification number) as a password. All letters in the LORA PIN are to be uppercase. This holds true also for wifi, the computers in the labs and the library, and printing.  Updated LORA PINs now go into effect at 9:00 am every day for the previous 24 hours.

The username remains unchanged, as the first part of your Loyola email before the “at” sign. For example, the email fjones@my.loyno.edu will have a username “fjones.”

Faculty, administrators and staff have a different password. For newer faculty, administrators and staff, use the first two letters of your first name and the last four digits of your Social Security number plus “lu.” For others, your Loyola email password will work.

The login for library resources is used whenever you are away from campus. It is also used for some resources while on campus, such as ebooks and etextbooks. Blackboard and email logins are not affected. If you have any questions, contact Information Technology at 504-865-2525 Monday to Friday, 8:30 am to 4:30 pm.
