If you are off-campus, you may be asked to enter a library ID number and a password in order to login to library research databases.

  • The library ID numbers for DSU students, faculty, and staff all begin with the numbers 21578.
    Older ID numbers are 14 digits (21578000 + 6 more digits; for example, 21578000000000).
    Newer ID numbers are 13 digits (215780 + 7-digit Colleague number).

  • The password is your last name (for example, smith).

  • On the login screen, type the Library ID number in the top box ("username" or "barcode") and type the password in the lower box.
    For example:
    2157800000000
    smith
