Trouble Logging in?

GLDYS Library Account

You've indicated that you are seeing the GLDYS login page when trying to access electronic resources.

If everything is working as intended, you see the GLDYS login page when you click Log In in the upper right corner of the page when searching GLDYS.  To access resources, you should click the orange View Now, View eBook, or View Full-text buttons when searching GLDYS, the search function on the main page of library website. 

You'll should then be routed through the resource authentication login if you're off campus. If you are clicking the View Now, View eBook or View full text buttons but you're not seeing the resource authentication page:

  • Navigate back to the library home page and click on the off campus login button. Log in, and try to access your desired resource again. You may need to refresh the page or start your search again.
  • Make a note of which resource holds what you're looking for and find that database in the Databases & Resources page, then search for the item you want. 

If either of those methods worked, you're good to go! If they didn't, use the button below to email a librarian for further assistance.
