Why do I need to log in?

To access the Library's licensed resources from off campus you must identify yourself as an authorized YU student or employee.

You only need to log in once at the start of each browser session.

I'm trying to access an e-book on campus and I'm asked to log in!

Certain Library resources are limited to those who authenticate themselves as authorized users, even on campus.


YU Library provides two Login options for YU current students/faculty/staff: 
YU Active Directory (YUAD) login and Library Account login.

YU Active Directory (YUAD) Login

Please note: Online Master Program and Cardozo Students must login with YUAD.

This is the same login used to access YUWireless or computers on campus.

The password by default should be the first initial of your last name, followed by the last four digits of your SSN. (x####) If you do not have a SSN (international student), the password defaults to the first initial of your last name, followed by the last four digits of your BANNER ID.

Look up your account Information.

Find out how to change your password.

Please contact ITS Helpdesk if you need to reset your password.
