Off-Campus Access to Library Online Resources

Current Bradley students, faculty, staff, and faculty emeriti can have access to library online resources from outside of Bradley network, with a login page that looks like this.

Use your BU user name (BUnetID) and password (the same user name and password you use for Bradley Email and Webster). For more information about BUnetID, contact IT Service Desk.

Problem diagnoses and solutions:

  • Your login is determined by Bradley directory.  If you cannot find yourself in the directory, or, if the directory says that you have left Bradley, you no longer have the access.  The library uses but has no control of the Bradley directory.
  • If you believe your directory information is incorrect,
    • Online students should contact Distance Education office (Colleen Splitter at csplitter@fsmail.bradley.edu, 309-677-4398, 309-677-2534).
    • On-campus students should contact Registrar's Office.
    • Faculty emeritus should contact Robert Parker (677-3295, runup71@bradley.edu).
  • The login page has to look the same as the sample above. If you do not see "Bradley University Library User Authentication" as the title of the login page, you are not on the right page. Call 677-2839 or email chen@bradley.edu.
  • If you get a login error "The username or password was incorrect", but the same the username/password works for BU email, contact IT Service Desk.
  • If your login works and you can go beyond the above login screen, but get an error message about the specific online resource you try to use, please email the error message to chen@bradley.edu.
