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 Interlibrary Loan software uses your Gonzaga email address and password for access.  Please contact the ILL Department if you have any questions about using our new system at 509-313-3824.

Campus Computers

If you are on campus, the library has lots of computing resources available for you. In addition to the GU-community computers on every floor of the library, we have the following options:

Computer Labs - Foley has two computer labs, one on the west end of the main floor and one in the basement. Both have about thirty computers, and the first floor lab computers are also touch-screen. Both labs are available for student use/study, except when a class is in session (as in the picture below).

Check out a Laptop - Check out a laptop from the Foley Circulation Desk. Check out time is 3 hrs. for use in the library building only.

Wireless access on Campus - Wireless access is available in many campus buildings and some outdoor areas. For more information, contact IT Support Services
