NetID: Your Gateway to Online Library Services

Access to the University's electronic resources is critical to anyone on campus, whether they are faculty, staff, or a student. Your NetID functions as the username for many University functions such as: MyUAlbany, WebCT, WebMail, and UNIX.

In addition, your NetID provides you access to many library services:


  • You can check the due dates and renew books on your MyMinerva account.
  • You can request materials through Document Delivery and Interlibrary Loan by setting up an Illiad account.
  • You can access Library databases and online journals from off campus.
  • You can use the public access computers in the Information Commons.

If you do not have a NetID or if you have forgotten your passwords, please contact the ITS Helpdesk .

SUNYCard: More than Just Identification

Your University ID, called a SUNYCard, has many functions. With the SUNYCard, a student has access to campus buildings and public transportation, and the ability to obtain meals and food.

Your SUNYCard functions as your library card as well. With it you can check out books, swipe to pay for library print jobs and photocopies, and use the bar code number to establish an Interlibrary Loan/Document Delivery account.

The Dewey Library has a Podium terminal where you can add money to your SUNYCard. It is located in the hallway across from the public rest room. In addition you can add money to the SUNYCard online.

The bottom line: it is important to carry your SUNYCard at all times!
