|Are you a Western Sydney University (WSU) Alumni or a former WSU permanent employee and do you have a GradLife card?||If you did not receive an Alumni (GradLife) card when you graduated or ceased permanent employment at WSU, you can contact the Office of Employability and Graduate Success (firstname.lastname@example.org or 02 9685 9500) to register and obtain this card.|
Have you registered with the Library as a Library Alumni member?
|To join the Library send us an email and include your Western ID number, current postal address and phone number. Attach either a scanned/photographed copy of your GradLife card or a copy of your GradLife registration email.|
|Have you received your login for Alumni e-resources?||
After your Library registration is completed, an email will be sent that includes a link to access Alumni databases.
Your login will be:
ID: Your student or staff ID number
PASSWORD: Your family name in UPPERCASE.
Note: This is different to your My Library login.
|Are you using the Alumni e- resources page?||Unlike when you studied/worked at WSU, there is no access to electronic resources via the Library search box or e-Resource page. You must use the Alumni e-resources page (Library homepage > Services > Alumni Members).|
|Are you getting an error message: Invalid username or password?||
If you have answered yes to all of the above and you still get this message, you may have made more than three unsuccessful attempts to sign in. Your password can become temporarily locked for a 20 minute period so please try again later.
You could also try a different browser (Chrome or Firefox) or clear the cache to see if this resolves the issue.
|Have you checked your browser settings for off campus access?||
Try a different browser or check your browser settings for off campus access.
