Logins for My Library and Off Campus Alumni require family names with apostrophes to be entered differently.

The My Library authentication software cannot accept apostrophes or spaces. Therefore omit the apostrophe and enter it using capital letters, for example:       

·        O’Reilly is entered as OREILLY

·        T’Dao is entered as TDAO

If you are logging into the Alumni e-resources remotely, enter your family name with the apostrophe using capital letters with no spaces

·        O’Reilly is entered as O’REILLY

·        T’Dao is entered as T’DAO


The following examples of family names with hyphens or spaces in between names apply to both My Library and Alumni off Campus login  

If your family name has a hyphen, enter your family name as written in capital letters, for example:


·        Clarke-Smith is entered as CLARKE-SMITH


If your family name has a space, use the first part only of your family name in capital letters, for example:

·        Van Tran is entered as VAN

·        Van der Poole is entered as VAN

·        Della Persono is entered as DELLA
