Mandatory Logins on Library Public Computers

Starting on Wednesday, June 17th, computers in the library will require users to log in with their campus username and password to get access. The process will be a phased one, and is set to be completed on Monday, June 22nd. The campus username and password are the same ones used to log in to Blackboard, campus e-mail, and the computers in Welch Hall and other parts of campus.

This change will affect all public computers located near the reference desk on the second floor of the library. Our 4 handicapped-accessible computers, located between the reference desk and the library entrance, will be included in the switch. However, the library will maintain 5 public access computers that do not need a login. These are the computers located opposite the circulation desk. This will enable us to continue to serve those members of our community who use the Dominguez Hills library.

We respectfully ask that students, faculty, staff, and others with a Dominguez Hills ID and password not use these public-access computers, as they are intended for members of the general public.

If you do not know what your campus username and password are, you can find them through MyCSUDH by using the following link: (The links are located about halfway down the left-hand side of the page, labeled "forgot your password?" and "forgot your username?"

If you are unable to retrieve your username and password using the MyCSUDH system, please contact the IT Help Desk at (310) 243-2500 for further assistance. Help Desk hours are Monday through Friday, 8am through 6pm

If you have any questions or concerns about mandatory logins being added to the library reference area computers, please direct them to Library Administration by calling (310) 243-3700, or by dialing 3700 while on campus.
