Login Information

Access to our Library Catalog

The public is permitted to use the UPSem Library online catalog without any login. Registered users of the Library may choose to login in order to gain access to their own account information and other services.  To login to our catalog, your barcode number (as shown on your Library card) is your user ID, and the PIN is the first three letters of your last name.

Off-Campus Access to our Online Databases, E-Journals, E-Books, and Video Streaming

Students, faculty and staff at UPSem or BTSR are entitled to remote access to our Library databases and other information that is restricted by site licenses. It is necessary for our campus Information Technology office to have a current network user ID and password on file for each person who wishes to use these resources remotely, from home or office. This is not the same user ID and password you use to login to our UPSem Library catalog (see above).

For UPSem students, staff and faculty : your network login (the same one you use for our campus email system or Blackboard) should give you access to these resources. Do not use the UTSNT\ prefix; just use the personal name part of your network user ID (such as jane.doe or jdoe), and your password.

For students, staff and faculty of BTSR : your login will normally be the initial of your first name plus last name, such as jdoe; your password will be the last six digits of your Library barcode number, as shown on your Library card.  If you have trouble connecting, you may need to check with our Circulation Supervisor, to make sure your current user ID and password are entered into our proxy server. Please contact Lisa Janes for further information :

For Union, PSCE or BTSR alumni : you can have remote access to the ATLAS full-text e-journals collection.  Please see the specific information for use of our electronic resources found on our ATLAS for Alumni/ae page.
