Coverage of our policies, procedures, and general information about the Hugh & Hazel Darling Library

Two logins for the library

There are two different logins required to access library resources and services. 

  • My Library Account (HIU ID number) - required to place holds and renew library books as well as create saved book lists through WMS*.
  • HIU network account (HIU email) - required to access research databases from off-campus, to log in to the library's WiFi, information Commons computers, and the PaperCut printing service.
