NetIDs in the Libraries
NetID's in the University Libraries
The University's NetID can be used to access various electronic services on campus. For more information about NetID, see IT Accounts.
Students, faculty, and staff can use their NetIDs to access the following library services.
- Off-campus access to databases and online journals: patrons must use their NetID to connect to the Libraries databases and online journals from off campus; detailed instructions can be found at http://library.albany.edu/db/access/.
- My Library Account allows patrons to access their library account to review current materials checked out, review their loan history, and renew materials within Minerva, the online catalog.
- ILLiad is the software used to request materials through Interlibrary Loan and UA Delivery. Illiad can be accessed at https://library.albany.edu/ill
- Electronic Reserves provides 24/7 online access to course-related readings, lecture notes, PowerPoints, and more. The Electronic Reserves system can be accessed at http://library.albany.edu/ares.
How to Use NetID's in the University Libraries
Patrons can gain access to these services with their NetID and Unix cluster password. Note that this password may differ from the MyUAlbany password and must be configured separately. It is recommended that patrons configure the Unix cluster password to be the same as their MYUAlbany password.
