What is single sign-on?
You're actually using single sign-on already at SU. When you log in to Gullnet, MyClasses, or an SU computer, you use the same username and password even though each of these are actually separate systems. You can now use that same username and password to sign on to library services as well. No more having to dig for your barcode!
Do I have to do anything?
In most cases, no. However, if you are a past user of our Interlibrary Loan system, there is a possibility you will be asked to create a new account the first time you log in using single sign-on, and your request history may not transfer automatically. However, all you need to do is contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at (410) 543-6077 and request that your information be transferred, and we will be happy to do that for you.
What library services can use single sign-on?
You can use single sign-on:
- When attempting to access the library's databases off campus (Research Port)
- For logging in to your library account to renew books and view your holds
- For accessing your interlibrary loan account
Basically, any place where you have been using your library barcode and last name to log in, you will be able to use your SU username and password instead.
What if I don't have an SU username and password?
We are aware that there may be some special cases where you will need access to a library site but you don't have an SU username and password.
If you need to renew books that you've checked out with a guest borrower card, you can still log in using the old barcode/last name system. Go to My Library Accounts in the sidebar to get started. When asked to choose an institution, do not select Salisbury University. Instead, choose "Other". This will allow you to log in to the system with your 14-digit barcode and last name.
To access your Interlibrary Loan account, we will need to set up an account for you so that you can access the ILL website. Just contact us and we'll start setting up your account!
When did single sign-on go into effect?
We activated single sign-on on March 16th, 2015.
