General Information / Log-In
Quality research takes time. Select your research topic and start searching for information early in the semester.
Log-In information for databases and e-books:
- In order to access databases and e-books from off campus, you will need to create a library password PIN.
Step 1: Begin at the Mardigian Library website. Click on the "My Library Account" link.
Step 2: Select whether you are “UM-Dearborn Student, Faculty, Staff, or Alumni” or “Guest Borrower”.
- UM-Dearborn Student, Faculty, Staff, or Alumni – enter your last name and your 8-digit UMID
- Guest Borrower – enter your last name and 14-digit barcode.
- Leave the PIN field blank.
Step 3: Click the “Log In” button. This will not actually log you in yet; you will still need to create your PIN.
Step 4: This page will refresh, and you will need to re-enter your last name and UMID barcode.
This time, however, the form will include two PIN boxes so you can create and verify your new PIN. Your PIN must be at least four characters long and can include letters and numbers.
Step 5: When you click the “Log In” button the second time, you should be taken to your library account.
