Username and Password for Alumni and Guest Patrons

Alumni and guest patrons (those who are not current Loyola students, faculty, or staff) should log in to My Account using your email address and last name:

  • Username - the email address you have on file with the library (ex. janedoe@gmail.com)
  • Password - your last name, in lowercase letters (ex. doe)

(This only applies to patrons with accounts created before July 2015. New alumni and guest patrons should use the password that is assigned to you by the library for logging in the first time.)

Once you have logged in for the first time, please change your password for additional security.

Use the My Account link on the Library website.

Sign in using your email address and last name in all lowercase letters

On the "My Account" tab, choose the menu option for "Personal Settings," then click on "Edit Details."

Click on "Update Login Credentials" to access options for changing your password.
