Your Library Password

Do you need to create a password to access your Library account, use the online databases, and make requests from the catalogs?

Click on  My Account on the Library home page, and enter your EOU ID (9#). The first time you log in to My Account, use your last name (all lower case, no spaces or punctuation) as a default password. At the next screen, you will be asked to create a new password.

Passwords must be at least seven characters in length, and contain at least one letter (a-z/A-Z) and at least one number. (NOTE: Passwords are case sensitive). Additional password information can be found in the Library FAQ, available beneath Research Help on the Library home page.

Colloquium - Thursday, January 26

Civic Engagement and Distance Education
  Guest Presenter:
 Jeff Dense, Ph.D.
Professor of Political Science
College of Arts and Sciences

Presentation begins at 4:00 pm
Q&A/Reception to follow

A number of higher education institutions have entered the "business" of online learning, yet this modality provides stern challenges to political science's civic engagement initiative. The link between distance education, civic engagement and the discipline of political science will be scrutinized with evidence from EOU's thriving distance education curriculum.

A Library resource list for those who wish to do further research on this topic is available via Colloquia Resources beneath the Research Help heading on the library home page.
