Library Account Help

Current Students

To print in the library, place holds in Primo, or to access databases and online journals, current OCOM students* will need to log in using their OCOM gmail username (do not include @ocom.edu); the password will be a combination of your Last name (first letter capitalized) and your library barcode number (the number found at the bottom of your OCOM badge).

FOR EXAMPLE, X-Men wunderkind Kitty Pryde would use the following credentials to login:

username: kitty.pryde
password: Pryde1234567

IF YOU HAVE MULTIPLE CAPITAL LETTERS IN YOUR LAST NAME, you will only capitalize the first letter of your last name. For example, super cool witch Minerva McGonagall’s account credentials would look like this:

username: minerva.mcgonagall
password: Mcgonagall1234567

IF THERE IS A HYPHEN OR APOSTROPHE IN YOUR LAST NAME, do not include the hyphen. For example, hip British actress Gugu Mbatha-Raw’s account credentials would look like this:

username: gugu.mbatharaw
password: Mbatharaw1234567

*NOTE: If you are a work study student and have an OCOM computer login, use the username / password you use to log into OCOM computers as your library credentials.

Student TAs: If you need to print out materials in your role as a TA, do not use your regular login. Rather, check in at the library front desk to get a TA print card.

If you are still having trouble logging in, you can call or email a librarian for help.

Faculty & Staff

To place holds in Primo, to access databases and online journals, or to print from the library computers, faculty and staff may log in using using their normal OCOM computer account login information. If the faculty / staff member does not have an OCOM account, then they should use the same rules for logging in as students.

Student TAs: If you need to print out materials in your role as a TA, do not use your regular login. Rather, check in at the library front desk to get a TA print card.

If you are having trouble logging in, please contact IT at x555, or at helpdesk(at)ocom.edu.

Community Members

For most alumni and general practitioners who are library card holders, your username will be firstname.lastname, and your password will be a combination of your Last name (first letter capitalized) and your library barcode number. You are welcome to change this at any time by accessing your library account in Primo.

FOR EXAMPLE, X-Men wunderkind Kitty Pryde would use the following credentials to login:

username: kitty.pryde
password: Pryde1234567

If you are having trouble logging in, use the form below to open a help ticket. Alumni who do not currently have a valid library account may use the Library Card Replacement form to request a new alumni account.

Alumni and general practitioners do not have access to databases from off-campus, so your login information will not allow you to log in remotely; rather, you must use one of the library desktop computers in order to access databases. Alumni Association Members may request articles via the Document Delivery for Alumni (DDA) service. Alumni who qualify for this service may request up to eight articles per month at no charge.

If you are still having trouble logging in or have questions about how your library account works, you can call or email a librarian for help.
