I can't log in to the Libraries website.
If you can't log in to the Libraries website using your Penn State access ID and password (or you receive an error message when you click on the Library Reserves link in ANGEL), you may need to register with the University Libraries.
- To see if you are registered, go to My Library Account and log in with your Penn State access ID and password if prompted. If you cannot access your account, then you are not registered.
For new students, registration is a two-part process.
- Activate your University Access Account at an ITS Signature Station, located in most computer labs. Your digital signature indicates your agreement with all University Libraries policies.
- Complete your registration online by updating your address and status information. An email will be sent to your Penn State email account within 24 hours of activating your account. Click on the link displayed in this email to complete your registration. Note: you must check your email and complete the online registration, or go to a library service desk to complete your registration in person, before accessing Course Reserve materials.
Students at any campus location may also register at their local Penn State library. World Campus students can register by submitting the Libraries Distance Registration form.
If you're registered for classes and with the library but still can't access the CAT, you may be experiencing a problem with your access account or password. Sometimes, students are able to access library resources after changing their password. If you're able to access your Penn State email or Portal page, but not the CAT (and if changing your password doesn't help), please contact us at email@example.com.
