Current students, faculty, staff and faculty emeriti outside of Bradley’s network can access online library resources using their BUnetID and password. For more information about BUnetID, contact IT Service Desk.

Problem Diagnoses and Solutions

  • Your current Bradley status determines your login. If you can’t find yourself in the Bradley directory, or it says you’ve left the school, you no longer have access. The library uses — but has no control of — your Bradley status.
  • If you believe your status information is incorrect:
  • You can access some resources through the general Bradley login page; others require signing on via the "Bradley University Library User Authentication" like the sample above. If you can’t access a resource and do not see the library user authentication login page, call (309) 677-2839 or email
  • If an error says the username or password was incorrect, but the same username/password work for your Bradley email, contact IT Service Desk.
  • If you can log in but get an error message about the specific online resource you’re trying to use, please email the error message to
