Research Tips - The Process
Library Logins Demystified
Foley library offers a variety of services you can access online. Many of these services require unique usernames and password. Here is a little explanation of which systems require which access information.
Primo/Classic Library Catalog: If you want to access the full contents of Primo, or if you want to access your account to renew books and see what you have checked out you can login to either Primo or the Classic catalog using your Student ID as the username and your last name as the password.
Reserve a Study Room: The study room reservations link brings you into the Classic Catalog and uses your Student ID as the username and your last name as the password.
Databases from off campus: To access full text databases, or resources such as Films on Demand for video streaming of a huge collection of documentaries, TED talks, and historical film footage, click on the database from the library Electronic Resources A to Z and sign in using your Gonzaga username (same as your email without the @zagmail.gonzaga.edu) and password.
ILLiad: Our InterLibrary Loan software, ILLiad, requires a unique logon that you create when you register. The username and password can be anything you select, but we do not recommend using your email address as a username as it is too long for the system to handle. If you have never used ILLiad before, follow the links for “First Time Users” to create your login. If you have used it before, but have forgotten your username or password you can contact the ILL department at 509-313-3878.
If you have any questions please let us know! The reference desk is staffed during all open library hours and can be reached at 509-313-5931, or contact us by chat from our library homepage or text message at 509-730-5979.
