Your Library Account

  • All current students of Western Colorado University will have a library account. 
    • If you find that you cannot access your library account, please contact us. We would be happy to activate your account for you.
  • You will use your barcode number (on the back of your Western ID card) to access your account online.
    • If you do not have a Western ID card, please contact us so that we may give you your barcode number.
  •  From your account, you will be able to:
    • View a list of items you have checked out
    • View when items are due
    • Renew items
    • Save searches
    • Create lists of items
    • Open and download ebooks and audiobooks
  • A link to your account can be found in our catalog and on our website header. Or, just click HERE.

Login Information

To access library accounts, some ebooks/audiobooks, and to request ILL or Prospector items:

Name (your first and last name) & Library Account Number (417000#######)

Contact the library if you have questions or issues.


To access databases:

Blackboard login (your stu###### and network password)

Note: your computer may remember this information, so you will not need to enter it again later.

Contact IT Services if you have forgotten your network login.

If you encounter an error while searching/accessing a database, contact a librarian.


To access your personal account in a database:

These accounts are often not Western related. They are free accounts you have set up on your own and, if forgotten, you will need to use a username/password recovery option provided by the database.

An example of this is Western OneSearch - you'll need to use your Blackboard login to access the database, but you'll set up and login to a personal account to save things to your folder.
