1. After selecting a database, electronic journal, or (in many cases) a particular journal article, you will see the NC State Login page. If you are a current student or faculty or staff member, you have an automatically generated Unity ID and should log in with the default NC State University login.
  2. You will then be asked for your UserID and Password.
  3. Upon successfully entering your Unity ID, you will be allowed to access the resource you selected.

NCSU Login is the only login page you should ever see. If you see a login page other than the NCSU Login page or you are asked for a password other than your Unity ID or NCSU Libraries Patron ID, something is wrong. Please Ask a Librarian.

What is my Unity ID?
