A library barcode is no longer needed to access library resources from off-campus. Use your CruzID Gold password when prompted!

Login from off-campus using CruzID Gold

  • New students don't need to activate their barcodes
  • CruzID Gold is more secure, helping to ensure the University maintain access to licensed content
  • The Campus VPN continues as an alternate method to access library resources from off-campus
  • The option to login with a library barcode will be available through fall quarter, and eventually phased out
