UMBC students, faculty and staff, your myUMBC username and password is the preferred method to log onto the library computers. NOTE: Your username MUST be all lower case. Instructions on how to create an account can be found on How do I create a myUMBC account?
Students from Baltimore-area institutions taking classes at UMBC through their home school should complete the Baltimore Student Exchange Program (BSEP) Enrollment Form to gain access to campus services.
Visitors (non-UMBC account holders) can request immediate access whenever the library is open. To obtain a guest account, please present a valid photo ID to a Desk Attendant. Guest accounts are valid only for the date of issue, are limited to the library, and cannot be used in other computer labs on campus.
Affiliated Researchers (e.g., research collaborators, contractors, conference attendees, summer camp attendees). UMBC faculty or staff members can request an account for people who are affiliated with UMBC but are not currently students, faculty, or staff and therefore are not identified in the UMBC's financial, human resources, or student administration systems.
Staff or faculty members sponsoring an affiliate to gain access to UMBC computing resources should visit http://my.umbc.edu/go/sponsoredaccounts. Additional details here: How do I request myUMBC accounts for non-UMBC users / Create a Sponsored Account?
Should you have questions about sponsored accounts, please contact Lynda Aldana, Associate Director for Technical Services at email@example.com.
