Off-Campus Access to Library Resources

In an effort create a more consistent and secure environment for our library users, we have changed our off-campus authentication methods. You will no longer use your last name and barcode to authenticate yourself for Tiffin University resources while off-campus. Instead, you will use your username (the first part of your email address) with your password. This password will be the same password used to access campus computers, email, self-service, and Moodle.

Your library barcode, which will be remaining the same, will only be to used to access your library account, request/check out materials from the library, and authenticate through select OhioLINK resources. On-campus users will continue with seamless access to our electronic resources with no additional login required. However, if you retain saved passwords in your browser, you will want to update your credentials before accessing library resources off-campus.

This change was made today (December 17, 2018)  and initial tests have proven successful, but if you experience any difficulty or have any questions about this change, feel free to reach out to us at We hope that this change will only make it easier to access library materials.
