Library Services for Students

Welcome!

Welcome!

UW-Green Bay Libraries have a lot to offer students: books, articles, research help, and more! This guide will introduce you to our services and resources we can provide to you. Explore our different resources on each page.  

If you need additional help or run into any issues, please navigate to the Research Help page to get in contact with a librarian. We are happy to help and answer any technical, research, or general questions you may encounter. 

UWGB Student ID Card

Your UWGB ID card serves as your library card. If you do not have your ID card, you would have received a letter containing your ID number when you were accepted into UWGB. If you did not receive your letter, or misplaced it, contact the IT Help Desk at 920-465-2309 or email helpdesk@uwgb.edu for assistance.

Accessing Content from Off-Campus

To access many of the library's resources, including online databases which contain journals, magazines, and newspaper articles, you will need the following:

Your UW-Green Bay campus network username and password. This is the same one that you use to access campus e-mail and Canvas. You should have received a letter with this information upon acceptance into the program.

Username
Consists of the first four characters of your last name, the first name and middle name initials, and the two-digit day of the month that you were born. For example: Mary Kay Jones’s birthday is May 4th, so her username would be: jonemk04. (Note: There are occasional exceptions to this syntax.)

Initial Password
Consists of the first letter of your last name (capitalized), followed by the # sign, followed by the 9-digit Campus ID number. Example: J#123456789

Troubleshooting
For more information about your password, how to change it, and what to do if it does not work, visit the Division of Information Technology's (IT) Student Technology Account page, or call the IT Help Desk at 920-465-2309.
