Password Problems: 

  • If you are unable to access subscription library resources from off campus (such as e-books, e-journals or databases) confirm your authentication status on the library homepage. The status is located on the upper right corner.
  • If the status says “login here for full access” click on that phrase to access the login page.
  • To login with a NetID, click the   button.  The fill in boxes below the big green button should only be used to login with a library ID, the number beginning in 205 found on USF ID’s.
  • If the status is listed as “you are logged in”, but you are still unable to access resources, log-in again here
  • If access to resources is still restricted after reauthenticating, more advanced troubleshooting is required. The most common culprit is a weak authentication on your current browser.  To fix this, you can take one of three approaches
    1. Temporarily switch to a different browser
    2. Shut down and reopen the existing browser.  This should reset the authentication status and allow for a new login to occur. You may need to close the chat window as well to completely restart your browser.
    3. Delete browser cookies.  This is only recommended for users comfortable with the cookies process.
  • For problems with your NetID, contact USF’s help desk
  • For problems using the 205# located on your USF ID card, contact the library’s circulation desk at 813-974-2729
