Library Logins Demystified

Many library resources and services require unique usernames and passwords.  Here is an explanation of which systems require which access information.

If you have any questions, the reference desk is staffed during all open library hours. Call 509-313-5931, or chat with us from our library homepage or text message at 509-730-5979. 

To access full-text databases or other resources such as Films on Demand or Anatomy Flashcards, select the database from the Databases List or from a link on a Research Guide. Sign in using the same username and password you use for Zagmail. If you forgot or need to update this password, go to the Gonzaga Password Reset page.

Our citation management software, RefWorks, requires a unique logon that you create when you register. The username and password can be anything you select. If you are creating a new RefWorks account, be sure the account creation window says "Create an account at Gonzaga University" in order to get all the benefits of RefWorks provided by Foley Center Library. If you forget your username or password, contact RefWorks to reset by emailing support@refworks.com. The "Citation and RefWorks" tab of the Library Tutorials guide provides  tutorials and guides to using RefWorks and its Microsoft Word plugin, Write-N-Cite.

Go to study room reservations for a tutorial showing how to reserve a study room. You will need your student ID number.

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 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.
